Summary provided by the publisher:

“In modern society, almost everything we do is intimately connected to information creation, retrieval, processing or management, and the internet is at the heart of this growing information society or knowledge economy. Technology has a real impact on people’s rights, and laws have become increasingly significant, whether in the enforcement of copyright law regarding the downloading of MP3-formatted songs through file sharing technologies or in the application of the general principles of contract law to online contracts. Cyberlaw@SA IV: the law of the internet in South Africa is therefore directed at advancing the principles of digital jurisprudence.

Comprehensively updated, the fourth edition of Cyberlaw@SA IV: the law of the internet in South Africa covers a wide range of topics and areas of discussion in the field of cyberlaw, from protection of domain names and personal information to identity theft and privacy. This edition provides in-depth discussions of e-taxation, protection of data, cybercrime laws, copyright law, consumer law and the processing of e-evidence and its value in civil and criminal proceedings.”
