Product description

This is a new edition of a book dealing with the law as it applies to computers. The increased use of computers throughout the world has dramatically expanded this area of legislation, and this is an essential and unified summary of the vast amount of available material. The author attempts to integrate the law's treatment of computers into that of surrounding and interlocking areas of the law. He explains the interaction of ordinary rules and special rules, and covers the basic principles of almost the whole range of legal subjects. Intended as an introduction to the subject for a newcomer, this text also hopes to provide some discussion and points of interest for the more expert legal reader.
