ABC-CLIO, 2006 - 395 lappuses

This encyclopedia covers legal issues relating to information technology and the Internet.


Using key events to illustrate major issues, Internet and the Law: Technology, Society, and Compromises explores such significant legal battles as A&M Records v. Napster and Apple Computer v. Franklin Computer, allowing readers a look into stories of trade secrets, music theft, and industrial espionage.

As information technology grows and the Internet's global reach strengthens, it is becoming more difficult to define rules to regulate it. Governments have tried, for various reasons, to restrict Internet content but have not succeeded, in part because the international nature of the Internet makes enforcement difficult. Internet and the Law focuses on laws relating to intellectual property and freedom of expression, and presents information in a clear and concise manner, making it easily accessible to students and others researching the intricacies of Internet law.


- Over 140 A-Z entries including biographies of key people involved in the development of Internet legislation

- An expansive glossary of technical and legal terms cross-referenced for easy access to information

- A detailed chronology of major developments illustrating changes in legal issues relating to computers, information technology, and the Internet

- A comprehensive index for quick reference to the numerous topics covered
