Paul Lambert
“I was simply riveted…so much more than a worthy compendium of SM laws and
cases. It simply brings the whole subject alive”
The Rt. Hon. Professor Sir Robin Jacob (from the foreword to the book)

“A useful snapshot of the issues that permeate virtual life.”
Stephen Mason, Barrister, International expert and author on electronic evidence and electronic signatures

“Lambert and the country reporters demonstrate that law can not only keep up with technological change, but can stay well ahead by anticipating upcoming questions….invaluable for lawyers and students serious about the widespread legal impact of social software, and the myriad ways in which different legal regimes react to these new and growing challenges.”
Professor Joshua Fairfield, Washington and Lee University School of Law

“This volume is your guiding star, shedding expert light not only on the legal perspectives of issues cropping up, but also on what we can expect the future to hold.”
Viktor Mayer-Schönberger, Professor, Oxford Internet Institute
International Handbook of Social Media Laws explores and explains the most
pressing social media issues facing national and global corporations, particularly
covering how these issues should be treated across international boundaries.
Covering the ever-expanding situations that can result from use of the social
media for commercial purposes, this handbook is written from a UK perspective
and also from the perspective of over thirty other countries, delving into the legal
nuances of each. It highlights the most important international laws and regimes
as well as national legislation and regulations. Individual country chapters
highlight the particular issues, cases and rules in separate jurisdictions with a
focus on the EU and US social networking arenas.

International Handbook of Social Media Laws is an invaluable handbook for
in-house counsel, private law firms, particularly those who practice in IT and media
law, and the compliance teams in tech companies. Students and academics can
also gain a greater understanding of the issues themselves, particularly across
comparative jurisdictions.

Paul Lambert, BA, LLB, LLM, CTMA is a solicitor and lecturer who specialises in
contentious and non-contentious internet, IT and intellectual property law. He
frequently writes and speaks on technology-related issues that affect the legal
systems of Europe, the US and Asia. Paul is the author of A User’s Guide to Data
Protection and Courting Publicity: Twitter and Television Cameras in Court (both
from Bloomsbury Professional).
