'Internet Law for the Business Lawyer'
How does a company structure an e-business model to ensure compliance with customs and export regulations? Do established principles of determining jurisdictions apply to the Internet? How does a company avoid infringement of intellectual property rights on the Internet? What differences are there between U.S. and European treatments of privacy?
The answers to these and other questions are in "Internet Law for the Business Lawyer," published by the American Bar Association's Business Law Section. This reference addresses legal issues a general practitioner is likely to face in supporting clients doing business on the Web. Each chapter provides analysis of the relevant legislation, regulation and case law.
