Is the online contract you clicked on binding, even if you just scrolled down and didn't read it? Is e-mailed pornography from co-workers sexual harassment? Can a student be suspended for online comments about a teacher? Can stalkers find your personal information online? What can you legally put on your Web site? What's not allowed? Do you really own your domain name? Can a library censor your Internet use? Who's reading your e-mail? Is online gambling legal? How "private" is your private information after you disclose it to a Web site? Can you be sued for making a gripe site about a business that ripped you off? Did you know the Web sites you visit and words you type into search engines are logged? Do other countries address these issues differently from the U.S.? Which country's laws apply on the Internet? These are just some of the issues addressed in this book. Issues In Internet Law: Society, Technology, and the Law looks at emerging issues heading into or recently resolved by the courts.
The new edition not only has an expanded glossary, but expanded topic, statute, and case indexes as well. Review comments: "Concise overview of Internet-related legal issues." (Law Library Journal)
• "Although it deals with the complex legal issues surrounding the Internet, it is written in layman's terms and illustrated with 'ripped from the headlines' court cases." (Amazon)
• "A valuable resource, well-researched and well presented."
• "I want a copy on my bookshelf always within arm's reach."
• "The anecdotal nature of the book made it very easy to understand the underlying legal concepts."
