Summary

  • "This book documents the findings and recommendations of research into the question of how IT laws should develop on the understanding that today's information and communication technology is shaped by cloud computing, which lies at the foundations of contemporary and future IT as its most widespread enabler. In particular, this study develops on both a comparative and an interdisciplinary axis, i.e. comparatively by examining EU and US law, and on an interdisciplinary level by dealing with law and IT"-- Provided by publisher.
