And that includes professions and lives outside the computing industry. Indeed, ACM was one of the first publishers to investigate the social, political, ethical, and legal ramifications of the technologies being created.
Now, in a new series of publications, we will introduce those discussions to a broader audience, expanding our reach and resources to other professional fields and to the general computer-using popululation., You are holding the debut edition in a series that will explore some of the critical issues facing our professional and personal lives in this digital age.
Intellectual Property in the Age of Universal Access is a compilation of some of the most cited articles and commentaries on technology and the law published by ACM. Yes, we know there are plenty of publications out there about technology and the law. Most of them, however, focus primarily on either the technology or the law.
This one's different: its strength lies in the ability of its authors-all leading experts in the computing and intellectual property arenas--to dissect and interpret both the technology and the resulting legislation. To really appreciate the impact of one, you must comprehend the other.
We hope you find this collection a valuable reference tool. Please keep in mind this is but a sampling of the information ACM has published on the subject of intellectual property ACM's Digital Library houses over a decade's worthof in-depth, comprehensive articles on a vast array of legal issues.
