`Cloud computing provides the foundation for the myriad of network services that millions of Internet users rely upon every day. The cloud offers economic benefits to providers and convenience to users, but it also generates challenging new privacy and legal concerns that until now have been largely under-explored. Anne Cheung and Rolf Weber's exceptional book on cloud computing issues fills an important void, featuring a comprehensive, timely and engaging collection of works assessing the cloud from many legal perspectives. From privacy to copyright to jurisdiction, the book is a must-read for anyone exploring the intersection of law and cutting-edge technologies.' -- Michael A. Geist, University of Ottawa, Canada
`Experts from various countries have managed to create a handbook on the legal aspects of cloud computing, including problems of intellectual property laws, contractual issues, privacy and private international law. In addition, the book deals with the highly sensitive and controversial problems of biomedical and health data stored in and transferred via cloud systems. The chapters are comprehensive and written with a masterful hand by lawyers who are known throughout the world as leading information law experts.' -- Thomas Hoeren, University of Muenster, Germany
