Abstract

Internet and E-Commerce Law provides a concise yet comprehensive introduction to the laws of e-commerce and the Internet. It starts with an introduction to the Internet, e-commerce and the legal system, and progresses logically through relevant areas of law, ranging from commercial issues, such as contract formation and consumer protection, to intellectual property, policy and regulatory issues, such as copyright, spam and computer crime. The text is written in a friendly, easily digestible style, with a focus on the overriding principles of the law. This approach makes it suitable for a broad range of students, including those with limited background knowledge of the law. With suggestions for further reading in each chapter, and an online resource centre providing sample questions and references to more supplementary reading, the text is equally useful as a springboard for deeper study of specific topics. Internet and E-Commerce Law is an essential text for business, law and information technology students studying this subject.
