This volume considers the theme of the protection of the user in the field of Information Technology, and more specifically in relation to software licences, electronic information services and Internet access services. Litigation in IT usually stems from the users' feeling that their expectations have been frustrated at performance. When dealing with such cases, the courts seem to increasingly take the objective of user protection into account. How is this protection implemented? Is this trend generally desirable? Is this judicial protection excessive? What are the constraints met by IT providers that should be taken into account in litigation? How can the user's position be improved? User Protection in IT Contracts extensively presents the reasons why, and the ways in which national courts may decide a case in favour of the user. Many practical issues are considered in this respect. Which factors appear relevant to deal with liability claims in IT? Are exemption clauses always enforceable? What are the implications of information duties for IT providers? How can general conditions be safely incorporated to a contract? This book exhaustively reviews these and other issues in English, Dutch and French law.

In this IBM® RedpaperTM publication, you learn how to implement the IBM subcapacity licensing functions and the IBM License Metric Tool to track and manage licenses for your IBM WebSphere® Application Server instances. It also summarizes the different licensing models that IBM employs, the advantages of using software asset management for IT companies, and explains how to save money by using these the subcapacity model for WebSphere Application Server licenses. The primary purpose of the License Metric Tool is counting the processor value units (PVU) and resource value units (RVU) for subcapacity and full-capacity licensing models. It is a no-charge metric tool that many companies use as a regular software asset manager for IBM products. This Redpaper shares installation and configuration scenarios for installing the Endpoint Manager server, the License Metric Tool server, and the IBM DB2® database on a single computer or in distributed computing infrastructures. It describes how the application server components are discovered by the License Metric Tool software, explains how to interpret the inventory reports, and provides technical details about the software detection techniques that the tool uses. You also learn about the software bundling process and how to manage the software inventory that is detected by using the Software Classification panel. You can then use the PVU Subcapacity Reports to analyze actual use of your licenses and produce the data for IBM license audits.

Financial identity theft is well understood with clear underlying motives. Medical identity theft is new and presents a growing problem. The solutions to both problems however, are less clear. The Economics of Financial and Medical Identity Theft discusses how the digital networked environment is critically different from the world of paper, eyeballs and pens. Many of the effective identity protections are embedded behind the eyeballs, where the presumably passive observer is actually a fairly keen student of human behavior. The emergence of medical identity theft and the implications of medical data privacy are described in the second section of this book. The Economics of Financial and Medical Identity Theft also presents an overview of the current technology for identity management. The book closes with a series of vignettes in the last chapter, looking at the risks we may see in the future and how these risks can be mitigated or avoided.
