MEDIA REVIEWS
"Here is a book that is up-to-date and accessible and I think it would be a valuable read for any non-lawyer with an interest or involvement in this area...The Guide's special strength is copyright and other IPRs, where the example case studies are well selected and genuinely enlightening." -- Laurence Eastham
"Easily read, this work is balanced nicely between being comprehensive and concise. Legal issues are addressed point by point, supported by case studies with notes on the Web 2.0 points, and followed with short exercises to allow testing of one's understanding of the problem being addressed, its implications, and one's ability to apply appropriate responses. The conclusion, along with answers to questions at the end of each chapter, provides helpful summaries of information. This handbook concludes with a list of useful sources for further research and an index. This will be a sought-after and well-used handbook...it provides practical guidance, ranging from interpreting law and best practice to critical issues in information management. It is highly recommended for all information-management professionals and students, especially those working in Web 2.0 and cloud environments." -- Australian Library Journal
