More about the editors
The Encyclopaedia consists primarily in a series of national monographs, treating the different legal subjects related to information and communication technology on the basis of a common standard outline.
The outline contains, besides a general introduction, seven main parts:
• Regulation of the ICT Market
• Protection of Intellectual Property in the ICT Sector
• ICT Contracts
• Electronic Transactions
• Non-Contractual Liability
• Privacy Protection
• Computer-Related Crime.
Besides the national monographs, this Encyclopaedia contains also monographs on supranational and international cyber law issues. Examples are the monographs on European Union Cyber Law or on International and Global Telecommunications Law. The Encyclopaedia provides further an International Cyber Law Codex with important international texts in this field.
