The IT Law Wiki
Known by the name ‘cyberlaw,’ its central tensions flow from the essential qualities of Internet, by which I mean the characteristics that distinguish the Internet from prior or constituent technology such as computers or phones.[1]


Cyberlaw (also spelled cyber law) is a term that encapsulates the legal issues related to use of communicative, transactional, and distributive aspects of networked information devices and technologies. It is less a distinct field of law than property or contract law, as it is a domain covering many areas of law and regulation. Some leading topics include intellectual property, privacy, freedom of expression, and jurisdiction.
