Information Technology Law Summary

Information Technology Law by Ian J. Lloyd

Are you a user of Twitter or Facebook? Do you download your music or shop online? How often do you log on to the Internet using your mobile phone? Aspects of information technology permeate every aspect of our lives. From websites such as Facebook and Twitter, to online music and shopping stores, to CCTV cameras, it is rare that a person is not touched by some form of IT every day. But how often do we stop and think about the legal dimensions of these every day brushes with IT? Since the pioneering first publication of Internet Technology Law in 1993, both the book and the subject have become widely recognised and respected both academically and professionally. Focussing primarily on developments within the UK and EU, along with some comparative international aspects, this book provides a broad-ranging introduction and analysis of the frequently difficult relationship between the law and IT. Information Technology Law is essential reading for undergraduates and postgraduates on law courses covering the law relating to IT, including IT law, criminal law, intellectual property, and contract law. It will also be highly valuable to business and management students, practitioners, and professionals working in the area. In this sixth edition: - There is increased focus on the Internet and related activities - Further information on topical areas such as defamation, computer hacking, virus dissemination, and online gambling will be included - A new concluding section, 'Living in the Internet World', considers the legal implication of our immersion in virtual environments. It asks tantalising questions such as whether a virtual personality can be the victim of assault or theft Online Resource Centre: - For this new edition the Online Resource Centre hosts an exciting new author blog, a catalogue of web links to key readings, as well as regular updates.
