IRLCT Editorial - Cyberlaw Section Special Edition 2012
While technological innovation leads to improved accessibility, higher speed and capacity as well as added functions in computing, the deployment of new technologies unavoidably complicates existing legal issues. This special edition addresses key legal challenges in the cyber environment faced by business and individuals today and provides insights into the establishment of greater legal certainty with reference to the current practice in the EU and US. The edition is divided into two parts - “Papers” and “Re?ection and Analysis” – that intend to strike the balance between academic debates and practical implications. It covers a wide range of topics such as data privacy protection, online defamation and electronic commercial transactions, which refer to different areas of law such as private international law, tort law and contract law.
