Product description

About the Author

Yair Cohen is the UK’s first internet lawyer, specialising in bringing justice to the victims of internet crime. Yair is a public speaker, an internet law trainer and a pioneer in developing internet law as a distinct area of law in the UK. With a reputation for relent- less dedication to helping those whom the current justice system lets down, Yair’s accomplishments through his firm, Cohen Davis, have been featured in numerous publications and media outlets, including The Law Society Gazette, The Scotsman, TIME, The Telegraph, LBC, Bloomberg News, The Evening Standard, Forbes, The Times, The Guardian and BBC Radio 4. Yair has gathered over 20 years’ experience in the eld of internet law, which began when he was at City University in London and set up his first online e-commerce business (before the phrase ‘e-commerce’ was actually invented) to fund his law studies. In the early days of the internet, being one of the only lawyers in the UK who knew how to code websites and who already had a deep insight into the back-end of the internet, Yair leveraged his technical knowledge and his legal experience to become the very first lawyer in the UK to specialise in internet law. What followed was unexpected, and unprecedented. Dozens of enquiries from professionals, individuals and companies, who were concerned with issues they were experiencing as a result of having an online presence, and requests from other lawyers to train them in this newly developing area of law. Having built up extensive knowledge of both the back and front end of the internet as well as the UK legal system, and combining that with his analytical and evidence-based approach honed over his years practicing criminal defence law, Yair Cohen dedicated and continues to dedicate his career to winning ground-breaking cases involving internet crime. His many achievements include taking part in the preparation of the first UK court case requiring Facebook to release a user’s identity, and being the first lawyer in the world to have obtained court’s permission to serve an injunction on an internet troll, via an Instagram message. His passion for what he does is as strong now as it was when he first started out. He has now authored this book to share his knowledge of what happens online, to protect the general public, and to lobby institutions to take a pro-active approach in protecting us, particularly young people, online.
