Summary The classification of information has always caused difficulties for the law as it does not fall easily into the categories of legally protected objects. "Information" is not necessarily property, nor a personal right or invention. It can be of value to its creator and to third parties but can easily be duplicated and copied. The introduction of copying machines and devices - the printing press, photocopiers and printers - caused problems with copyright and unauthorised disclosure, and the introduction of computers and the internet have compounded these problems. Not only can information be copied many times in a second but it can now be sent to millions of people instantaneously around the world. The purpose of this book is to identify the different forms and categories of electronic information, to discuss problems associated with electronic information and to outline the law that is ;relevant to those problems.
