The Information Technology Act, 2000, enacted to give effect to the United Nations General Assembly resolution adopting the Model Law on Electronic Commerce and recommending its adoption by member states, provided a very important first step in the creation of a legal framework for e-commerce in India. However, experts have felt that the Act left various issues unresolved. Dynamic and relentless developments in technology and the complexities of the commercial sector have necessitated a revaluation of the existing law. In the second edition of this informative and thoughtful work, the legislative changes brought about by the Amending Act of 2008 are extensively discussed. The amended sections clearly reflect the suggestions of the Expert Committee appointed by the Central Government to review the 2000 Act as well as of the Parliamentary Committee. It is the view of the author that the amending Act has chopped away much dead wood and has replaced sections that were found to be inadequate for addressing contemporary issues. The commentary critically analyzes the impact of the amendments along with the procedure to be adopted while acknowledging and dispatching of electronic records, as also the safeguards one needs to adopt while conducting e-business. This book is an essential reference work for lawyers practicing in the field of cyber-law, business houses which conduct transactions electronically or are considering doing so, Internet Service Providers, IT and Information Technology Enabled Services (ITES) sectors, members of the Cyber Appellate Tribunal, the TDSAT, central and state judicial academies, and advanced students of cyber law.
