Fitzgerald, Brian F., Fitzgerald, Anne M., Beale, Timothy, Lim, Yee Fen, & Middleton, Gaye (2007) Internet and E-commerce Law : Technology, Law and Policy. Lawbook Co., Pyrmont, N.S.W..


The last ten years have seen the internet and e-commerce emerge as central features of our commercial, social and cultural life. Developments such as Web 2.0, the semantic web, e-government strategies, user generated content, virtual worlds and online social networks have reshaped the way we communicate, interact and transact.

The focus of this book is the regulatory framework of the internet and e-commerce. It considers how the law has developed in the context of rapid technological change and analyses how it is being applied to define rights and obligations in relation to the online infrastructure, content and practices. It offers an extensive, detailed and current analysis of several key areas of internet and e-commerce law which have undergone significant change in recent years: copyright in digital content, patents for software and e-business methods, domain names and trade marks, electronic contracting, privacy, cybercrime, taxation of internet businesses, liability of internet intermediaries and regulation of online content.

This new text is essential for business and law students studying Internet and E-Commerce law, as well as information technology students and practitioners.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
