"Books such as this should be seen as a godsend by computer lawyers freed from the drudgery of inventing text and formats"
-Computer Law and Practice
".. the precedents . . . are useful starting points with the principal issues and local variations highlighted . . . There is little doubt that this is a useful addition to the bookshelves of the IT specialist practitioner"
- Computer & Telecommunication Law Review
"We are told that we shall soon all be passengers on the 'information superhighway', caught up in a 'multi-media revolution.' However, amidst all the hype remains the fundamental concept that, irrespective of the end results or functions of this technology, there must be an old fashioned contractual relationship between parties who wish to use or exploit it in any way."
-The Legal Executive Journal
"In addition, to reflect the international nature of information technology, the work also provides a Commentary which goes some of the way to explain the law and practice behind the precedents from the viewpoints of a number of countries. Clearly presented and extremely useful, this will greatly assist the ever increasing band of IT practitioners."
-The Legal Executive Journal
"The universality in style and content of the contracts included in the publication is intended to reassure the user that the laws relating to computers in general, and intellectual property in particular, have developed and evolved along substantially similar lines in all the jurisdictions represented."
