The breakneck speed at which transactions take place and trans-border issues crop up that disrupt traditional patterns of legal regulation make information technology laws different as well as unique. Hence, the enactment of an information technology law was the need of the hour since the dawn of the information technology revolution. Unlike other laws, it recognizes electronic transactions and makes unlawful access and interception of private or proprietary data a criminal offence. The author must be commended for having painstakingly produced a magnificent body of research in his new work, despite the fact that this area of law post the Information Technology (Amendment Act), 2008 is an emerging one, has seen few prosecutions and even fewer convictions, but a great number of controversies.
The overarching narrative offered in this book will prove to be immensely interesting, enlightening and a useful mine of information for the reader looking to specialize in the IT Act. The book constantly and consistently raises important questions through much of its 550 odd pages, on a host of controversial themes, and frames both sides of debates. The author has evidently sought to develop a critical paradigm for the reader rather than offering mere megabytes and gigabytes of information.
