Computers Internet and New Technology Laws 2013 -: Computers, Internet and New Technology Laws is a comprehensive reference work that expansively and comparatively discusses the key developments in the field of cyber law across India and other jurisdictions, particularly, Europe and the United States. The book is written with a special focus on cyber law related legislations in India, the IT Act, 2000, its recent amendments and new rules framed thereunder. It covers pertinent issues including internet censorship & surveillance, freedom of speech, data protection, privacy, cybercrimes and electronic evidence in an analytical manner. It also provides a scholarly insight into issues of jurisdiction, e-commerce, e-taxation, electronic signatures and payments. The book presents an excellent critique on emerging legal issues related to social networks, WikiLeaks, cloud computing, online dispute resolution, UID, behavioural advertising and converging technologies. Commentary on Information Technology Act -: 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.
