Product description

Minimize Web Liability

The Internet has become the fastest way to disseminate vast amounts of information. It has provided businesses the unique opportunity to expand their reach into new and diverse markets in a cost-effective manner. It has also led to the creation of internal networks, or Intranets, that provide employers and employees with an efficient way to communicate. Yet despite their value, both Internet and Intranet sites leave an organization vulnerable to serious legal risks.

Butterworths Web Law - Agreements, Guidelines and Use Policies will help you to minimize these risks. Technology law experts Lisa K. Abe and Marie-Helene Constantin explain how to establish and enforce clear policies for setting up Web sites, Intranets, and other information technology (IT) processes. Guidelines cover how to reduce risks from outside, and inside, an organization.

This book addresses the laws and issues arising in Canada's common law provinces and territories, and civil law as it applies within the Province of Quebec.
