A lot of Computer Science courses seem to be running Law modules as standard, in order to teach students about things like The Data Protection Act, Copyright, etc.
Realistically, is Law an important subject for Computer Scientists or Programmers? Did you take Law or take a Law class whilst studying for a CS related degree? If you did, do you have any book recommendations for someone wanting to learn more about Law in the IT domain?
EDIT: I've already been given a fantastic reference and that's been chosen as my accepted answer. However, I am a British student, so any UK-specific book recommendations would be fantastic.
