Book "Internet & Law"
(Brief contents of basic edition)


Nowadays Internet is not an unusual thing for whatever person any more. It has become available for everyone as a universal means of getting any information in any language and in any country. Internet is simple and clear. Clear for every person. But not for the lawyer…

A question of Internet legal regulation is especially urgent not only in Russia but worldwide. Many Internet fragments can still be considered as an illegal space where copyright, trade mark and brand rights are broken, slander is widespread, personal data is mixed up.

This book can be considered as an attempt of a lawyers’ creative glance at various processes taking place within Internet. Its language is not scientific and unappealable. Moreover, the author tried his best to get rid of difficult legal constructions and to focus on Internet users as the wide range of possible readers and others to whom it may concern.

Educational course “Internet & Law”

Internet commercial potential and state regulation full realization is possible only at a glance of a highly qualified lawyers who are aware of both legal and technical sides of Internet and are ready to improve national legislation in the above sphere. Moreover, they are ready to represent Russian interests on the international stage. It is a pity that nowadays Russia does not have a satisfactory educational basis to improve lawyers’ skills. Yet a problem of highly qualified specialists is especially urgent today.

Many technical universities are trying to launch various legal courses which give random judicial knowledge to their attendants. Absence of educational literature in the above sphere causes great damage to common level of specialists training. As a result this may cause Russia distraction from most powerful states of information society and afterwards will not let our country become its equal participant.
