Information Technology Law: The Law and Society is the ideal companion for a course of study on IT law and the ways in which it is evolving in response to rapid technological and social change.
This ground-breaking work is the first textbook to systematically examine how the law and legal process of the UK interacts with the modern ‘information society’ and the fast-moving process of digitization. It examines the challenges that this fast pace of change brings to the established legal order, which was developed to meet the needs of a traditional physical society.
To address these issues, this book begins by defining the information society and discussing how it may be regulated. From there it moves to questions of Internet governance and rights and responsibilities in the digital environment.
Particular attention is paid to key regulatory ‘pressure points’, including:
DT copyright for digital products
DT identity fraud
DT electronic commerce
DT privacy and surveillance
Possible future challenges and opportunities are outlined and discussed, including e-government, virtual environments and property, and the development of web 3.0. Information Technology Law: The law and society covers all aspects of a course of study on IT law, and is therefore an ideal text for students. The author’s highly original and thought-provoking approach to the subject also makes it essential reading for researchers, IT professionals, and policymakers.
This new edition will include expanded coverage of defamation & privacy as well as substantial revisions to Part II on the governance of the information society.

Tan Sook Yee’s Principles of Land Law has been hailed as a milestone in legal text in Singapore. Previous editions of this book have been on extensively by all levels of the Singapore courts and the book’s influence is demonstrated by the fact that even a hypothetical posed in the previous edition merited an extensive discussion in the Singapore Court of Appeal. In this third edition, Professot Tan Sook Yee is joined by Associate Professors Tang Hang Wu (National University of Singapore) and Kelvin FK Low (formly of Hong Kong University, now Singapore Management of Singapore) in dating the text. The updates have been extensive , to take into court what has recently been substantially re-written to take these changes into account. Since its release in 2009, this edition has already been cited by the High Court and the Court of Appeal of Singapore.
Medical law touches on many of society’s most hotly debated issues, from the status of the embryo to the withdrawal of life-sustaining treatment, and from assisted suicide to research on humans, organ transplantation, and the ownership of body parts. The media shines a glaring light on these and many other contentious medical questions, but as legal authority Charles Foster points out, camera flashes don’t shed real light. To truly grasp these issues, Foster argues, you have to dive deep into the particular cases, and further, to the principles behind the cases. In this highly readable and entertaining book, Foster illuminates those principles, illustrating them with examples from many fascinating and notorious cases. He sheds light on such controversial and significant topics as clinical negligence, patient confidentiality, euthanasia, informed consent, abortion, in vitro fertilization, and much more. Whatever your interest in medical law–as a healthcare professional, policy-maker, law student, or just the concerned owner of a body–this Very Short Introduction it is essential reading.
