Internet Law by Chris Reed

Book Description

The common fallacy regarding cyberspace is that the Internet is a new jurisdiction, in which none of the existing rules and regulations apply. However, all the actors involved in an Internet transaction live in one or more existing jurisdictions, so rather than being unregulated, the Internet is arguably highly regulated. Worse, much of this law and regulation is contradictory and difficult, or impossible, to comply with. This 2004 book takes a global view of the fundamental legal issues raised by the advent of the Internet as an international communications mechanism. Legal and other materials are integrated to support the discussion of how technological, economic and political factors are shaping the law governing the Internet. Global trends in legal issues are addressed and the effectiveness of potential mechanisms for legal change that are applicable to Internet law are also examined. Of interest to students and practitioners in computer and electronic commerce law.

Making Laws for Cyberspace by Chris Reed Making Laws for Cyberspace, Hardback (March 2012)

A new model for cyberspace laws focussing on human actions rather than the technology used. Arguing that, in cyberspace, law works primarily through voluntary obedience rather than fear of enforcement, Professor Reed re-opens the debate as to the value of laws for regulating cyberspace and how best to regulate behaviour.

Computer Law by Chris Reed Computer Law, Paperback (December 2011)

This established work, now the standard text on computer and information technology law, is fully updated to reflect the Digital Economy Act 2010 and numerous recent case law developments.
