Are you a user of Facebook or Ebay? Do you download your music or shop online? Do you have an avatar on Second Life? Do you drive or use cash machines, and how did you book your last holiday? Aspects of information technology permeat every aspect of our lives. From websites such as Ebay and Facebook, 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 dimension of these daily 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 uneasy relationship between the law and IT.In this fifth edition: - the author provides an in-depth examination and update on computer related crime, including the national and international legal response - further information on the internet, e-commerce, and the regulation of e-commerce is provided - discussion of data protection and the clash with national security - 'the surveillance society' - is included This book 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.

I have no hesitation in recommending this book to anyone interested in or studying this evolving, topical and fascinating area of law. It is impressively written in a logical and coherent way meaning that complex legal issues are broken down into a series of small steps. ... a vital text for students and practitioners alike.
