" With the expansion of the Internet and the increasing number of home computers, it is obvious that computers and technology are playing a more important role in business and commerce. It is therefore important that lawyers are fully up to date with the changes and developments in the law applying to this new area of law. The book explains how computer misuse such as hacking and viruses occur and the Criminal Damage Act 1991 is examined in this respect. It discusses the Data Protection Act 1988 in relation to computers and privacy and examines electronic contracts and liability in contract and tort for defective computer products and services."
