Abstract

Cyberlaw: The Law of the Internet and Information Technology is written primarily for undergraduate students in paralegal, legal studies, criminal justice, business, and computer and information science programs to help them better understand the legal and policy issues associated with cyberlaw and the Internet. The text also includes compliance information that business managers, webmasters, and information technology professionals will find relevant and useful. The goal is to help readers better understand the legal and policy issues associated with the Internet. Cyberlaw is the field of law dealing with the Internet, encompassing cases, statutes, regulations, and disputes that affect people and businesses interacting through computers. With the ever-expanding role of the Internet and technology in people’s lives, Internet law is at the heart of many legal and policy issues today, including jurisdictional questions, intellectual property rights, tort actions, privacy rights, e-commerce, cybercrimes, and online speech. Since the Internet is a fluid and dynamic medium, the need for a current text in the field written for a diverse audience exists.
