Overview

"Technology has always fascinated me. Gemini, Apollo, and Star Trek all captivated me as a kid. I managed to marry both law and technology by becoming a tech lawyer." So are we introduced to columnist and practicing lawyer Mark Grossman. Based on a series of previously published articles, Technology Law adopts a reader-friendly approach to the problems and issues faced by those of us who depend on technology to make a living—in other words, just about everyone! Written in the first person, it transitions easily between explanations of why certain laws exist (and what they mean) and suggestions for responding responsibly and effectively.

This is a highly recommended work
International Journal Of Law and Information Technology
...offers useful insight to business people into the practical and legal considerations of technology based activities under U.S. law.
Software Development Consultant - Gerry Oxford
A helpful guide to all the legalities you vaguely wondered about as you were rushing to finish a web project - which ones to ignore, which ones to worry about, and which ones you didn't even know existed
Dr. Ariel Reich
Many a lawyer writes exhaustive (and exhausting!) treatises about their area of legal expertise. Mark Grossman gives business people and lawyers alike straightforward, succinct and down-to-earth advice in a fast moving area of the law. Great to compare notes with a fellow practitioner.
Daniel DiPierro
Timely! Mark has written about a very real and current topic. A must read for anyone who has an interest in media, or digital content. And since it is well-written, it manages to take a dull topic and make it a quick fun read. Well done!!
