Derived from the renowned multi-volume International Encyclopaedia of Laws,
this practical guide to cyber law – the law affecting information and
communication technology (ICT) – in Hungary covers every aspect
of the subject, including intellectual property rights in the ICT sector,
relevant competition rules, drafting and negotiating ICT related contracts,
electronic transactions, privacy issues, and computer crime. Lawyers
who handle transnational matters will appreciate the detailed explanation of
specific characteristics of practice and procedure.
Following a general introduction, the book assembles its information and
guidance in seven main areas of practice: the regulatory framework of the
electronic communications market; software protection, legal protection of
databases or chips, and other intellectual property matters; contracts with
regard to software licensing and network services, with special attention to
case law in this area; rules with regard to electronic evidence, regulation of
electronic signatures, electronic banking, and electronic commerce; specific
laws and regulations with respect to the liability of network operators and
service providers and related product liability; protection of individual
persons in the context of the
processing of personal data and confidentiality; and the application of
substantive criminal law in the area of ICT.
Its succinct yet scholarly nature, as well as the practical quality of the
information it provides, make this book a valuable time-saving tool for
business and legal professionals alike. Lawyers representing parties with
interests in Hungary will welcome this very useful guide, and academics
and researchers will appreciate its value in the study of comparative law in
this relatively new and challenging field.
