Collisions in the Digital Paradigm

Law and Rule Making in the Internet Age

By David Harvey

It has been said that the only asset that a lawyer has is time, but the reality is that a lawyer's greatest asset is information. The practice and the business of law is all about information exchange. The flow of information travels in a number of different directions during the life of a case. A client communicates certain facts to a lawyer. The lawyer assimilates those facts and seeks out specialized legal information which may be applicable to those facts. In the course of a generation, there has been a technological revolution which represents a paradigm shift in the flow of information and communication. This book is about how the law deals with digital information technologies and the problems that arise when the law has to deal with issues in a new paradigm.
