WSLL Recommends: Law of Electronic Commerce

As the volume of trade accomplished through electronic means continues to skyrocket, this area of the law is also developing and evolving at a staggering rate. To help practitioners keep pace with new cases, statutes, regulations, proposals, commentaries, and model laws, authors Jane Kaufman Winn and Benjamin Wright provide guidance on the implications of communications technology for both consumer and commercial transactions, as well as in the workplace.

The fourth edition of The Law of Electronic Commerce has been completely revised to reflect the explosive growth of the internet and the one-to-many network model that has replaced older forms of electronic commerce. Readers will find practice pointers and in-depth analysis of:
  • Electronic contracting
  • Electronic payments and lending
  • Intellectual property rights and rights in data
  • Privacy and collections of data
  • E-business regulation, including antitrust, trade practices, securities, and banking
  • Taxation of electronic commerce
  • Computer crime and computer security
  • Electronic records in litigation, including authentication and the best evidence rule
  • Employer liability with regard to electronic communications and devices in the workplace
  • Developing a records management program
  • Liability of service providers
Author Wright also maintains both a blog and a Google+ page. His recent posts include:
  • How to Confiscate a Mobile Device
  • Attorney-Client Confidentiality: Data Security Breach
  • Taxes, Regulation and E-Commerce Innovation
  • Corporate E-mail Archives: Unwanted Liability or Searchable Asset?
  • Negotiating By Way of the Cloud Gathering Mobile Legal Evidence
