Glossari dei termini giuridici (Ing.)

We know that word-for-word, literal, direct translations are useless in most fields, accordingly, I gathered a few links to online American, Canadian and English legal glossaries that explain some of the Law terminology. It contains definitions, of techniques, media and other law jargon. Because metaphrases, nuances of wording are not reflected in legal texts and do not provide the necessary details, hence, some useful links

The Berkman Center for Internet & Society at Harvard University, this website explains not only the meanings of the words in the glossary, but also examples and numerous links to other sources of information for those who need to research further. Example:

Moral Rights – Broadly speaking, the set of rights in a work that give control over the existence or fate of a work, rather than over its economic exploitation. They are most often listed as: The right of paternity – The right of integrity – The right of withdrawal – The right of release
