Law, Policy and the Internet

Edited by: Lilian Edwards

This comprehensive text by the editor of Law and the Internet seeks to provide students, practitioners and businesses with an up to date and accessible account of the key issues in internet law and policy from a European and UK perspective. The internet has advanced in the last twenty years from an esoteric interest to a vital and unavoidable part of modern work, rest and play. As such, an account of how the internet and its users are regulated is vital for everyone concerned with the modern information society. This book also addresses the fact that internet regulation is not just a matter of law but increasingly intermixed with technology, economics and politics. Policy developments are closely analysed as an intrinsic part of modern governance. The book will focus on three key areas; e-commerce, including the role and responsibilities of online intermediaries such as Amazon, Google, and Facebook; privacy and data protection and crime online.
