Understanding Developments in Cyberspace Law, 2015 ed.
Understanding Developments in Cyberspace Law provides an authoritative, insider's perspective on the current issues affecting the legal environment of the Internet. The Internet pervades almost every aspect of modern life. From data storage to social media, interoffice communication to consumer goods, most transactions take place, to some extent, in cyberspace. Laws around the world have been changing to reflect this Ð existing laws are adapted to account for electronic media, while legislatures pass new regulations. Because most, if not all, areas of law will involve the Internet at some point, lawyers need to be familiar with the regulations and court decisions that apply to cyberspace, even as they are rapidly changing. In Understanding Developments in Cyberspace Law, lawyers who know this area well share both general insights and specific tips about issues such as U.S. cybersecurity laws, cyber insurance for companies, and data security overseas. The days of filing cabinets and mimeographs are over, and now companies and their lawyers must be prepared to operate in an ever-shifting world of electronic data. With this book, you'll be taking a key step in that preparation.
