For answers to questions relating to computers, the Internet and other digital technologies - and how to make them work for your clients - turn to this comprehensive, practical resource. Whether you're an experienced IT lawyer, a transactional or intellectual property attorney, an industry executive, or a general practitioner whose clients are coming to you with new issues, you'll find practical, expert guidance on identifying and protecting intellectual property rights, drafting effective contracts, understanding applicable regulations, and avoiding civil and criminal liability.

Written by Michael D. Scott, who practiced technology and business law for 29 years in Los Angeles and Silicon Valley, Scott on Information Technology Law, Third Edition offers a real-world perspective on how to structure transactions involving computer products and services such as software development, marketing, and licensing. He also covers the many substantive areas that affect technology law practice, including torts, constitutional issues, and the full range of intellectual property protections.

You'll find coverage of the latest issues like these:

  • computer and cybercrime, including spyware, phishing, denial of service attacks, and more traditional computer crimes
  • the latest judicial thinking on software and business method patents
  • open source licensing
  • outsourcing of IT services and the legal and practical issues involved in making it work
  • and more

To help you quickly identify issues, the book also includes practice pointers and clause-by-clause analysis of the most common and often troublesome provisions of IT contracts.

Note: Online subscriptions are for three-month periods.
