"There is nothing more defenseless than the still warm corpse of a little being."
One of the basic principles of law is the so-called “effect of anticipation” referring to social relations. This necessitates that the law reacts to the challenges coming from the avant-garde of modern science.
The fast development of technological process and its possible effects, which might be either positive or negative, compels the legislations to face these problems.
The Declaration for the utilization of the technological and scientific progress in the name of peace and human welfare states that the scientific and technological progress has become one of the major factors of development for the human society. It might become a crucial factor to improve the living conditions of peoples and nations, but at the same time it might trigger serious social problems, to jeopardize human rights and man’s basic freedoms.
This necessitates the Declaration of basic principles, which would serve as a ground for the individual governments and international institutions to draft documents regulating the newly established relations.
This work, and the following ones will discuss the major cases, arising as natural result from the relations between the law and the new high technologies. Because of the diversity of this subject matter, it will be systematized according to the differentiated branches of law: computer law, space law, biomolecular law, nanotechnological law, cyberspace law.
Each of these branches will be discussed in detail in a separate book. This first book is titled COMPUTER LAW (in Bulgarian).
