Overview

The introduction of new digital information and communications technologies has given birth to a new legal domain, commonly called Information and Communication Technology Law or – more fashionable - “Cyber Law ”. Electronic commerce has led to specific legal problems, for example with regard to evidence, liability, consumer protection or payment. The convergence between broadcasting, telecommunications and digital information technology has created a new platform for public information with all the related legal issues.

Practically every country in the world has issued specific legislation or developed case law in this area. The domain has acquired sufficient stability to fit into a common structure. A logical consequence of this evolution is the publication of an International Encyclopaedia of Cyber Law. The Encyclopaedia consists primarily in a series of national monographs, treating the different legal subjects related to information and communication technology on the basis of a common standard outline. The outline contains, besides a general introduction, seven main parts:

  • Regulation of the ICT Market
  • Protection of Intellectual Property in the ICT Sector
  • ICT Contracts
  • Electronic Transactions
  • Non-Contractual Liability
  • Privacy Protection
  • Computer-Related Crime.
