This module aims to introduce the student to the basis of the legal systems that govern the supply and use of computer and communications technology. The sources of law regulating electronic transactions arising related to these technologies will be emphasized. Developing an understanding of the regulatory framework relating to electronic business transactions, starting with the simple formation of a binding electronic contract, and moving to complex issues of data protection, intellectual property rights, electronic liabilities, e-payments and financial transactions, and dispute resolution are the main concerns of this course.
