Expert’s Opinion
“It is possibly the first such comparative study of the different cyber cultures prevailing in different parts of the world and is likely to have a great impact on cyber society and lead to the creation of “cyber norms” of global intensity...The meticulous manner, in which this highly commendable book has been handled by the author, makes it an authoritative reference work in aspect of laws relating to Information Technology both in India and abroad, since cyberspace is not hemmed in by any geographical boundaries. I can say with confidence that this book will be a valuable contribution to the literature on Cyber law and practices and merits a place on the shelf of anyone whose work constantly involves the use of computers, the internet and the virtual world of cyberspace...” Excerpt of Foreword by Hon’ble Justice Altamas Kabir, Judge, Supreme Court of India
