Technology Laws Decoded Hardcover – 27 Mar 2017 by N S Nappinai (Author) – Lexis Nexis
In view of the increasing involvement of Technology in all walks of life, an understanding of the regulatory framework governing its use and misuse is essential for all. Technology Laws Decoded was conceived to become a single point reference on substantive and procedural aspects of Cyber Laws.
