Corporate Information and the Law is a timely, comprehensive and incisive text that specifically focuses on the laws that apply to the way in which corporations create, use, disclose and secure information; a work that embraces laws relating to corporate governance and disclosure, consumer protection, intellectual property, electronic commerce, the internet, information technology and privacy.
The success of corporations is directly influenced by how well they manage corporate information. Corporate Information and the Law brings together, as a central reference, all of the key laws that create rights or impose obligations in respect of corporate information.
The areas of law covered in order to establish this single framework include:
• Rights in corporate information/Rights to use
• Some key constraints on the use of corporate information
• Disclosure to market/customers
• Disclosure to regulators & in litigation
• Data security laws & information retention laws
The aim of Corporate Information and the Law is to create a reference which can be used by practitioners, academics and students alike to better understand the legal issues associated with information management in today's information economy.
For readers, the book will have the merit of providing a comprehensive and coherent framework that examines each area of information law in detail, in order to map the boundaries of the categories of obligation, so as to suggest the answers to practical problems that are as clear as the governing law permits.
