Description
This book explains the fundamental principles of law which apply to the Internet. It does this by (a) identifying the special legal problems which the Internet has created, (b) examining the ways in which these are dealt with in different countries, and (c) identifying the common principles which are used globally to regulate use of the Internet.
Other books on Internet Law explain the law of a particular country. This book is unique in that it examines the law globally. Its main importance is its fundamental analysis of legal problems and principles which are common to all countries. From this analysis the reader will be able to understand the true nature of a particular legal problem, and thus be able to research and apply the appropriate national law rules to that problem.
Students of Internet law will find this book invaluable. Practitioners will also find it very useful, and business professionals will find the book accessible and a helpful aid to understanding their legal advisers.
