It's a jungle out there, (in ISP LiabilityLand) but your capable jungle guide, Tim Casey, takes you safely and firmly into and out of what would otherwise be very complex and potentially dangerous territory. Bring a camera.-Vinton Cerf

Governments around the world are establishing laws and regulations that will have a great impact on the way Internet Service Providers (ISPs) do business. With existing and ongoing efforts to regulate the Internet, ISPs are in desperate need of expert guidance to sort out which laws apply to them. This is precisely what author Timothy Casey offers in his new book. As the preeminent technical legal counsel for MCI WorldCom and one of the framers of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, Casey shows you how to protect yourself in this volatile market.

This valuable guide gives you:
* Detailed explanations on the varying laws and how their technical features impact running a liability-free ISP
