Michael is a practising barrister, and the author of Internet Law, which has just been published by Bloomsbury Professional. Internet Law provides an up to date analysis of the law surrounding online behaviour, as it engages with issues such as defamation, privacy, data protection, crime, employment and intellectual property. The book consider key cases which deal with the liability of intermediaries such as Google and Facebook, the anonymity of internet users, the right of employees to online privacy, and the use of evidence from social media in legal proceedings. Internet Law not only provides a snapshot of the law as it stands in Ireland, but also offers in-depth analysis of the developing law in other common law jurisdictions, as a guide to how they may shape the future jurisprudence of the Irish courts.
