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.
