Product description

“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.”

The Hon Michael Kirby AC CMG
(Justice, High Court of Australia 1996-2009)
