Computer Law

How does the law apply to the digital world? Is it legal to copy a music CD? Can I download movies and music through peer to peer networks, legally? Those are some of the questions that will be answered in a class I’m taking: Computer Law.

I had my first class today and it’s looking very interesting so far. Some things that I’ll learn more about:
* Intellectual Property
* Identity
* Privacy
* Licensing
* Contracts
* E-Commerce
* Taxes (in e-commerce)
* Liability (if a bug in your software causes the harddrive of a user to be cleared, can you be held responsible?)

In short: very intersting stuff.
