The worlds of today and tomorrow rely upon open networks connecting far-flung participants exchanging information both personal and commercial. Bringing some certainty to this very dynamic environment are the legal foundations supporting the free flow of information over the Internet.

New lawyers, lawyers new to information and Internet law, lawyers updating their knowledge on the latest statutes and cases, and lawyers desiring a global comparative legal perspective are among the audiences who require this single resource to consolidate their understanding of global information and Internet law.

This book, up-to-date to March 2018, provides insight by looking at current statutes, regulations, and directives in the United States and Europe, supplemented by statutes in Asia and the Americas ex-U.S. It discusses and identifies issues raised by the latest U.S. and EU cases on protection of information and use of the Internet.

It starts with a risk-based, lifecycle approach to this area of law. The areas of information law addressed: privacy, information security, and data protection law, unlawful data disclosures through cybercrime and data breach, and lawful data disclosures related to messaging and surveillance. The areas of Internet law addressed: access, jurisdiction, speech, intermediary liability, intellectual property, and e-commerce through electronic and website agreements.

Bringing a unique perspective to explain a complex topic, the author has written numerous books on legal technology and legal history, writes and speaks extensively on the latest developments in technology law, teaches U.S.-EU comparative law school courses on information, Internet, and emerging technologies law, and had worked in complementary disciplines across the major parts of the world. This book is the result of those many years of experience and insight.
