Cyberlaw, 2 vols.
Ed. by Brian Fitzgerald.
The international library of essays in law and legal theory; 2d series
The increasingly prominent field of cyberlaw, as Fitzgerald (Queensland U. of Technology, Australia) notes in the introduction to this two-volume reader, "covers a broad array of topics, including digital intellectual property, electronic commerce, electronic transactions, privacy in the electronic or online environment, cybercrime, digital entertainment, jurisdiction, and content regulation." The 37 papers presented, previously published between 1994 and 2005 in international law journals and a few other sources, are organized into sections discussing broad legal issues of the Internet; regulation of cyberspace, including subsections on self- regulation and digital libertarianism, self-regulation and industry governance, code as law, and contract and private ordering; digital constitutionalism; jurisdiction; content regulation; intellectual property, including subsections on copyright and patents; e-commerce and competition policy; privacy; spam; and intermediary liability. Fitzgerald's goal in presenting these papers is to provide a broad introduction to the key issues of the field of cyberlaw.
