The progress of information and communication technology (IT) has surpassed all expectations. IT is affecting almost every aspect of human life and the development can be expected to continue as the technology becomes more advanced and costs continue to drop.

The Scandinavian countries have long been in the forefront when it comes to the use of IT, mobile telephones and the Internet. The awareness of technical potentialities is reflected in a longstanding jurisprudential interest in the field.

The Swedish Law and Informatics Research Centre for Computers and Law held its first seminar in 1970, and, not surprisingly, the activities in this field are presently more intense than ever. Following this tradition, this volume presents 27 newly written articles on current legal issues relating to IT. The contributors are all scholars and practitioners active in Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden.
