¿ CLEAR & CONCISE: Tight case editing, focused questions, and topical problems direct students' attention to the most critical issues. The book covers the full sweep of the subject, but is still short enough that the core topics can be taught in a 3-credit survey course. ¿ UP-TO-DATE COVERAGE: The seventh edition features five new principal cases, along with numerous new and revised notes and questions. New cases deal with international injunctions, free speech rights to use the Internet, compelled decryption, trademarks and search engines, and algorithmic accountability. Several sections have been tightened up and older material has been cut, resulting in a streamlined reading experience. ¿ TECHNICAL AND HISTORICAL NOTES: Mini-essays throughout the book provide the essential technical background needed to make sense of computer and Internet technologies. Where modern doctrine has important historical roots (e.g., network neutrality and telecommunications regulation), the book gives the necessary context.

* CLEAR & CONCISE: Tight case editing, focused questions, and topical problems direct students' attention to the most critical issues. The book covers the full sweep of the subject, but is still short enough that the core topics can be taught in a 3-credit survey course. * UP-TO-DATE COVERAGE: The Fifth Edition features an extensively rewritten section on network neutrality that covers the FCC's second Open Internet order, a revised section on the NSA covering developments through the USA FREEDOM Act, and heavily updated coverage of developments in free-speech law. New cases deal with issues including online service of process, international comity, cyberbullying, privacy class actions, domain-name injunctions, and first sale; new and revised notes cover protections for the institutional press, spam laws, the ICANN gTLD expansion, and the triennial DMCA exemption rulemaking process. * INTERNET LAW AS A CAPSTONE COURSE: The book embraces the doctrinal diversity of Internet Law. It prepares students for the complexity of real-life legal practice by showing how actual Internet cases raise interrelated problems from all throughout the law. * TECHNICAL AND HISTORICAL NOTES: Mini-essays throughout the book provide the essential technical background needed to make sense of computer and Internet technologies. Where modern doctrine has important historical roots (e.g., network neutrality and telecommunications regulation), the book gives the necessary context.

This book discusses the international legal issues underlying Internet Governance and proposes an international solution to its problems. The book encompasses a wide spectrum of current debate surrounding the governance of the internet and focuses on the areas and issues which urgently require attention from the international community in order to sustain the proper functioning of the global network that forms the foundation of our information fuelled society. Among the topics discussed are international copyright protection, state responsibility for cyber-attacks (cyberterrorism), and international on-line privacy protection. Taking a comparative approach by examining how different jurisdictions such as the United States, the European Union, China and Singapore have attempted various solutions to the problem of Internet Governance, the author offers a practical solution to the problem and is a proponent of International Internet Law. Kulesza suggests that just as in the case of International Environmental Law, an Internet Framework Convention could shape the starting point for international cooperation and lead to a clear, contractual division of state jurisdictional competences. International Internet Law is of particular interest to legal scholars engaged with the current challenges in international law and international relations, as well as students of law, international relations and political science. The issues discussed in the book are also relevant to journalists and other media professionals, facing the challenges of analyzing current international developments in cyberspace.

Written in an accessible manner, the book provides real-world examples and case studies to help readers understand the practical applications of the presented material. The book begins by outlining the legal requirements for data security, which synthesizes the Federal Trade Commission’s cybersecurity cases in order to provide the background of the FTC’s views on data security. The book also examines data security requirements imposed by a growing number of state legislatures and private litigation arising from data breaches. Anti-hacking laws, such as the federal Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, Economic Espionage Act, and the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, and how companies are able to fight cybercriminals while ensuring compliance with the U.S. Constitution and statutes are discussed thoroughly. Featuring an overview of the laws that allow coordination between the public and private sectors as well as the tools that regulators have developed to allow a limited amount of collaboration, this book also: • Addresses current U.S. and international laws, regulations, and court opinions that define the field of cybersecurity including the security of sensitive information, such as financial data and health information • Discusses the cybersecurity requirements of the largest U.S. trading partners in Europe, Asia, and Latin America, and specifically addresses how these requirements are similar to (and differ from) those in the U.S. • Provides a compilation of many of the most important cybersecurity statutes and regulations • Emphasizes the compliance obligations of companies with in-depth analysis of crucial U.S. and international laws that apply to cybersecurity issues • Examines government surveillance laws and privacy laws that affect cybersecurity as well as each of the data breach notification laws in 47 states and the District of Columbia • Includes numerous case studies and examples throughout to aid in classroom use and to help readers better understand the presented material • Supplemented with a companion website that features in-class discussion questions and timely and recent updates on recent legislative developments as well as information on interesting cases on relevant and significant topics Cybersecurity Law is appropriate as a textbook for undergraduate and graduate-level courses in cybersecurity, cybersecurity law, cyber operations, management-oriented information technology (IT), and computer science. This book is also an ideal reference for lawyers, IT professionals, government personnel, business managers, IT management personnel, auditors, and cybersecurity insurance providers.
