This book discusses the international legal issues underlying internet governance and proposes that an international internet law is required to solve the resulting problems.
Author: Joanna Kulesza
This book discusses the international legal issues underlying Internet Governance and proposes an international solution to its problems. The book encompasses a wide spectrum of current debate surrounding the governance of the internet and focuses on the areas and issues which urgently require attention from the international community in order to sustain the proper functioning of the global network that forms the foundation of our information fuelled society. Among the topics discussed are international copyright protection, state responsibility for cyber-attacks (cyberterrorism), and international on-line privacy protection. Taking a comparative approach by examining how different jurisdictions such as the United States, the European Union, China and Singapore have attempted various solutions to the problem of Internet Governance, the author offers a practical solution to the problem and is a proponent of International Internet Law. Kulesza suggests that just as in the case of International Environmental Law, an Internet Framework Convention could shape the starting point for international cooperation and lead to a clear, contractual division of state jurisdictional competences. International Internet Law is of particular interest to legal scholars engaged with the current challenges in international law and international relations, as well as students of law, international relations and political science. The issues discussed in the book are also relevant to journalists and other media professionals, facing the challenges of analyzing current international developments in cyberspace.

'Internet law' and 'electronic commerce law' are new entities and as such there is some difficulty in defining this rapidly changing area of the law. Scholars are divided as to whether it is a subject in its own right or part of a broader area and there is also debate concerning its status as a new law or as old law which needs interpreting in a new way. This text helps the student to unravel this complicated area of law and provides guidance through the wealth of literature available on the topic. The text is for law students coming towards the end of their first degree, or taking a Masters. The first half focuses on the principles of electronic commerce law and includes an introduction to the law of the Internet, basic concepts in intellectual property law, privacy law and data protection. The second part deals with rights and duties in the online world including, liabilities, ownership and contracts. Technical operations are explained in the text as necessary and a glossary provides a guide to the more commonly encountered computer technicalities. With a supporting website providing links to online further reading, this textbook is ideal for students of e-commerce law and will provide those studying information technology law or practising commercial law with an indispensable introduction to Internet issues.
