Introduces the key legal issues in cloud computing with special focus on data protection, contracts with cloud service providers and intellectual property
  • The only book in Malaysia addressing legal issues in cloud computing
  • Provides a basic understanding of how cloud computing works
  • Explains the intersection between cloud computing technology and data protection law, contract law and intellectual property law
Cloud computing is the storing and accessing of all forms of data over the Internet instead of on an individual's computer. The technology permeates various layers of the society ranging from the simple individual whose personal data is kept in the cloud with or without his knowledge to the mega corporations that strategically utilise the technology for myriad purposes related to their business.

This book provides an introduction to the key legal issues in cloud computing. Three areas that are central to cloud computing, namely data protection, contracts with cloud service providers and intellectual property.
  • Data protection and its interaction with cloud computing
This section discusses the challenges which cloud computing poses to the protection of personal data that is stored in the cloud. The section also considers the role which the Personal Data Protection Act 2010 plays in regulating the processing of personal data and the implications of the Act on the processing of personal data stored in the cloud.
  • Contract with cloud service providers
The section addresses issues pertaining to formation of contracts and privity. It attempts to identify and examine some of the common terms that are unfavourable to the users and, yet, are not negotiable. The legal issues that arise with regard to the fairness or otherwise of some common contractual terms are discussed under both contract law and the Consumer Protection Act 1999.
  • Intellectual property - specifically patent and copyright issues
The storing and streaming of the content in the cloud itself may raise issues as as to the infringement of intellectual property rights. These issues bring forth the fundamental questions of who should be held liable for the infringing content that is stored in the cloud.
This book is written in simple language to provide easy understanding and practical guidance to business users and providers of cloud computing services.

The Company Constitution is a concise, practical guide to a company's constitution which is at the core of the operations of a company. In 6 chapters, this book provides guidance on company constitutions in the new statutory regime under the Companies Act 2016. It provides clarification for professionals within Malaysian companies as to the company constitution in relation to companies registered before and after the enforcement of the Companies Act 2016.

The book assists in the transition from the former to the new statutory regime governing companies. It explains the effect of the old Table A (Companies Act 1965) provisions where adopted in the new statutory environment and advises on provisions that may be replaced, modified or adopted while keeping within the requirements of the new law. Useful commentary is given on Table A articles which have identical or similar Replaceable Rules in the new Act. A comparison of identical or similar Replaceable Rules and Table A articles adds value to the book.

       Selfies on Assignment      
Photographer Alex Potter took this selfie on the beach in Bir Fugum, Yemen.
"I wanted to dig deeper into how the war has affected families. So I followed a number of fathers and sons in the north and south, digging into the changing relationships and expectations between them. I saw the place with new eyes as I saw what fathers were doing to raise their sons well in the midst of war."
