Reviews

"If you need to consult a great book on the legal implications of cloud computing, then look no further ... Professor Millard is responsible for a work which explores the principles of cloud computing law in a way that will remain relevant for some time. It's a book that the serious players will return to again and again." - Martin Hoskins

"This book is the result of ground-breaking research over the past four years by the core members of the Cloud Legal project at the Centre for Commercial Law at Queen Mary, University of London: Ian Walden, Kuan Hon, Simon Bradshaw, Chris Reed, Julia Hornle, Alan Cunnigham and of course Christopher Millard himself. In addition, one chapter is co-authored by Laise Da Correggio Luciano. ... The book is essentially a detailed, but easily accessible account about the legal implications of cloud computing. At the same time, it is a fascinating insight into why cloud computing is different from traditional outsourcing, and an enabler of new business models that are part of nearly everyone's daily life." - Laura Linkomies, International Report Privacy Laws and Business Data Protection and Privacy Information Worldwide
