9780199657612: Making Laws for Cyberspace

Providing a scholarly analysis of how to govern and make the right kinds of laws for cyberspace, in this work, Professor Reed investigates the vast majority of cyberspace users who wish to act lawfully and asks whether the current state of law in cyberspace makes it possible for them to do so. If not, why not, and what is the cure?

In this book, Professor Reed puts forward a new model for cyberspace laws which focuses on human actions rather than the technology used. Arguing that, in cyberspace, law works primarily through voluntary obedience rather than fear of enforcement, Professor Reed explains his thoughtful and controversial new viewpoint as to how cyberspace laws should be devised and re-opens the debate as to the value of law for regulating cyberspace and how best to influence the behaviour of cyberspace actors. The only text to comprehensively analyse European cyberspace lawmaking, this book provides a new perspective to the debate about the proper shape and scope of internet laws.

About the Author:


Chris Reed is Professor of Electronic Commerce Law at Queen Mary, University of
London. He teaches on a number of Queen Mary's LLM courses in the field, which include Computer
Law, Electronic Commerce Law, and Cyberspace Law. From 1997-2000, Chris was Joint Chairman of
the Society for Computers and Law, and in 1997-8 he acted as Specialist Adviser to the House of
Lords Select Committee on Science and Technology. Chris participated as an Expert at the European
Commission/Danish Government Copenhagen Hearing on Digital Signatures, represented the UK
Government at the Hague Conference on Private International Law, and has been an invited speaker
at OECD and G8 international conferences.

Review:


"The author presents a clear view of the current laws governing cyberspace. He does an excellent job of presenting the basics of lawmaking authority and theory. He develops his arguments so that even if a reader disagrees, she cannot quarrel with the logic used to reach the conclusions. Reed has written a thought-provoking book that advances the discussion of cyberspace law. This book would be a good addition to any academic law library, particularly those that collect in legal theory or comparative law."
--Aperna M. Sherman, Law Library Journal


"This book deals with issues relating to how to govern and make the right kinds of laws (easily understood, having clearly-specified aims, effective, enforceable, etc.) when using this vast global telecommunications system commonly called the Internet."
--Deekay Daulat, BIZ INDIA Online News
