This chapter introduces the volume with a discussion of computer law and human law. Instead of referring to the common meaning of computer law as a field of private or public law that aims to regulate human actions that involve computing systems, this chapter introduces the idea of a law that effectively rules the interactions of non-human actors. This raises a number of questions concerning the meaning of law, human law and the comparative perspective that is at stake in this volume.
