Abstract:

The primary objective of IEL Cyber Law: Uganda is to present readers with general principles of cyber law and specific Uganda cyber laws. In addition to outlining the background information on Uganda, including historical aspects of cyber law, the monograph examines relevant legislation and case law from Uganda and some commonwealth jurisdictions on the nature and formation of electronic contracts, regulation of ICT sector in Uganda, intersection between ICTs and intellectual property rights, electronic transactions, privacy and data protection. After interrogating general principles governing computers and the law in Uganda, this monograph delves into an analysis of specific aspects of cyber law. This monograph is written in a simple, readable, friendly and accessible form. It is written in such a way that it may be easily read by lawyers, law students, non-lawyers, including business and ICT people, and all those interested in matters concerning law and technology. I am grateful to my colleagues Mr Richard Bwayo, Mr Baker Birikujja, and Mr Solomon Rukundo for assisting with some of the materials for this monograph and Mr Francis Xavier Birikadde who partially assisted in editing the monograph. I also wish to pay tribute to all the past and present students of Computers and the Law,
whom I have taught at the university level for over a decade. Finally, I express my sincere appreciation to my wife Racheal, family and friends. You inspire me a lot. To God be the glory.
