The free flow of information and services around the world via the Internet constantly creates new issues and problems, such as rules of jurisdiction and applicable law and how new products and services should be regulated.

Social media and networking;

The Laws of the Internet is a comprehensive practitioner's text which will undoubtedly be a useful reference point for any lawyer operating in the commercial sphere...a convenient first port of call...extremely accessible with technical knowledge never assumed...the only judicially-acclaimed text on this subject for a reason - it is the most authoritative and comprehensive practitioner's text available in the area and comes highly recommended as a reference point for all lawyers advising on commercial transactions via the internet. -- Annabelle Gold-Caution * www.scl.org (The Society for Computers & Law) *
The book continues the excellent standard set by preceding editions. As well as incorporating new case law, it analyses recent legislation...and flags up emerging issues...This is a book which will remain, at least for the forseeable future, indispensable for anyone - whether a practitioner or a client - who needs to dip a toe into the murky waters of internet law. * Commonwealth Lawyer Vol 25, No 1 *
