About this item

Information Technology Law: The Law and Society is the ideal companion for a course of study on IT law and the ways in which it is evolving in response to rapid technological and social change. This ground-breaking work is the first textbook to systematically examine how the law and legal process of the UK interacts with the modern 'information society' and the fast-moving process of digitization. It examines the challenges that this fast pace of change brings to the established legal order, which was developed to meet the needs of a traditional physical society. To address these issues, this book begins by defining the information society and discussing how it may be regulated. From there it moves to questions of Internet governance and rights and responsibilities in the digital environment. Particular attention is paid to key regulatory 'pressure points', including: DT copyright for digital productsDT identity fraudDT electronic commerceDT privacy and surveillance Possible future challenges and opportunities are outlined and discussed, including e-government, virtual environments and property, and the development of web 3.0. Information Technology Law: The law and society covers all aspects of a course of study on IT law, and is therefore an ideal text for students. The author's highly original and thought-provoking approach to the subject also makes it essential reading for researchers, IT professionals, and policymakers. This new edition will include expanded coverage of defamation & privacy as well as substantial revisions to Part II on the governance of the information society.ONLINE RESOURCE CENTREThis edition is accompanied by the following online resources:DT Audio updates DT Flashcard glossary DT A link to the author's 'IT Lawyer's blog'DT Audio revision filesDT Web links DT Additional online chapters: The digital public sphere; Virtual environments
