Sookman: Computer, Internet and Electronic Commerce Law (2000-2014)

Sookman: Computer, Internet and Electronic Commerce Law reflects the author’s familiarity not only with the law but also with the industry itself. As the industry has expanded and grown in complexity so has the law, and, so has Sookman. From a single volume as first published in 1989 to the present seven volumes of detailed, comprehensive coverage, Sookman: Computer, Internet and Electronic Commerce Law provides the only current source of Canadian information with significant international developments that comprehensively analyzes IP/Tech legal issues. The continued growth of the Internet as a means of doing business ensures that eventually there will be no “e” in eCommerce, and almost any practitioner advising commercial clients will need to have an understanding of this law.

As the foremost Canadian authority on IP/IT law, Sookman is frequently referred to and applied by the courts.
