While a lot has been written about ISP liability in the last decade, it still proves to be a hot topic and one worth of ever more reflection and debate. If this is the case in jurisdictions where special statutes have been enacted, it is all the more so in countries lacking such rules. Hence scholarly initiatives such as the workshop held on this subject at the Universidad de San Andrés (Argentina) in May 2010 are certainly welcome. A result of that workshop is this book, published in March 2012. It contains 18 chapters from a total of 19 authors and has been compiled by one of the authors, the Argentinean legal scholar and lawyer Pablo A. Palazzi. In this book review I present the main issues the book touches upon.
