US and International Computer Related Laws

I am currently studying for GPEN and I need to find references to US and international computer related laws. I have a few books talking about the main ones and I have also found some articles on the web, but I fear I may miss some...

Would anyone know about a link or two where I could find an exhaustive list of computer fraud/computer misused laws?

Knowing these laws is a must, but studying them is so boring...  :-\
