This edition is fully updated to reflect the Digital Economy Act 2010 and changes to consumer protection law at EU level including the Unfair Commercial Practices Directive. Analysis of recent case law is also incorporated including, amongst others, the series of trade mark actions against eBay and copyrights suits against Google as well as the implications for IT contracts of BSkyB Ltd v HP Enterprise Services UK Ltd. All chapters have been revised to takeinto account the rapid evolution of the ways in which we consume, generate, store and exchange information, such as cloud computing, off-shoring and Web 2.0.Now established as a standard text on computer and information technology law, this book analyses the unique legal problems which arise from computing technology and transactions carried out through the exchange of digital information rather than human interaction.
Topics covered range from contractual matters and intellectual property protection to electronic commerce, data protection and liability of internet service providers. Competition law issues are integrated into the variouscommercial sections as they arise to indicate their interaction with information technology law.

Here's what you say about us...

Chris Reed is Professor of Electronic Commerce Law at Queen Mary, University of London. He teaches on a number of Queen Mary's LLM courses in the field, which include Computer Law, Electronic Commerce Law, Information Law, Communications Law and Media Law. From 1997-2000, Chris was Joint Chairman of the Society for Computers and Law, and in 1997-8 he acted as Specialist Adviser to the House of Lords Select Committee on Science and Technology. Chris participated as an
Expert at the European Commission/Danish Government Copenhagen Hearing on Digital Signatures, represented the UK Government at the Hague Conference on Private International Law and has been an invited speaker at OECD and G8 international conferences.

Nevertheless, as with previous editions of iComputer Law,r the style remains accessible and highly readable, with excellent analysis. It is less UK-centric than many texts on the subject and would be a good choice for those studying on undergraduate or postgraduate courses in IT law and should be of equal appeal to those in practice.
