This text examines the main legal considerations surrounding computer software and hardware and their maintenance, distribution and marketing. In addition to paying close attention to EC legislation in this area, this edition reflects the spiralling growth of the computer industry and the large numbers of changes made in practice. Material new to this edition includes: public sector contracts; database rights; logic bombs; Software Directive changes; outsourcing/disaster recovery; commercial agents; ergonomics/health and safety regulations; network services/service level agreements; and site licences/multi-user agreements. Further precedents have been added to the existing precedent material and all relevant legislation, both UK and EC, is considered.
