"The broad scope of this book and the depth of its coverage make it the definitive English law textbook on e-commerce and an indispensable source of reference for any practitioner advising in this area." - Practical Law Company
"There are many books on Internet law on the market - but few, if any, could compete with Graham Smith's 'Internet Law and Regulation' which, in terms of comprehensiveness of subject-matter covered and detail, is a hard act to follow. Indeed, it justifies taking the risk of praising too much and raising too high expectations, by saying that this book reads and feels like the Bible on Internet law.." - Journal of Information Law & Technology
"...catapults the work in the very first row, if not the top spot itself, of current English textbooks on the law of the Internet. Thoroughly thinking, ably presented, sound arguing with some references to economic backgrounds, a coverage almost as comprehensive as possible - what else could you expect and demand from a textbook." - Computer Und Recht International, December 2002
