"A valuable practitioner's guide to the...law of the Internet. It portrays the law as it is, a still evolving system in all it's complexity and contradiction. " —Esther Dyson, President and EDventure Holding's Former Chair; ICANN Board and Former Chair; and Board Member Emeritus, Electronic Frontier Foundation

Internet and Online Law, a comprehensive and authoritative work, was created by an all-star team of legal experts. It offers conceptual legal analysis, historical context, and clear, lively explanation. The oldest continuously published treatise on Internet law, this book includes in-depth coverage of many areas not found in other works.

Internet and Online Law provides insightful analysis of: contracting (ranging from changing concepts of the statute of frauds to the enforceability of terms and conditions stated only as a URL in hard-copy contracts); defamation and reputation management; online crimes and abusive practices; obscenity, child pornography and other sex-related issues; social networking (including First Amendment issues, workplace policies, student rights, and advertising practices); privacy, data protection and related issues (including federal and state statutes, consumer privacy, anonymity, legal aspects of blogging and online journalism, and state data breach laws); copyright and trademark law (including comprehensive explanation of the online aspects of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act and the Communications Decency Act as applied to both online service providers and Internet users); eCommerce (including everything from Tesla sales, to gambling, to FTC consumer protection, to securities law, to a detailed analysis of virtual currency); online legal ethics; Internet jurisdiction (domestic and foreign, inbound and outbound); estate planning involving digital and online assets; and the increasingly important area of International online law.
