NOW AVAILABLE: Ver. 5.0 -Fully revised and released July 2015.  

Version 5.0 features an extensively rewritten section on network neutrality that covers the FCC's second Open Internet order, a revised section on the NSA covering developments through the USA FREEDOM Act, and heavily updated coverage of developments in free-speech law. New cases deal with issues including online service of process, international comity, cyberbullying, privacy class actions, domain-name injunctions, and first sale; new and revised notes cover protections for the institutional press, spam laws, the ICANN gTLD expansion, and the triennial DMCA exemption rulemaking process. And the entire book sports a clean new design, with refined typography for increased readability. An outstanding book that just keeps getting better!

In this casebook author James Grimmelmann provides tightly edited cases, focused questions, and topical problems to direct students' attention to critical issues. Mini-essays provide the technical background to make sense of Internet technologies and the historical conetext to make sense of Internet law. The core of the book can be taught comfortably in a 3-credit course, but professors can easily use the book's embarassment of riches to explore topics of interest. The casebook responds to the "law of the horse" critique by embracing the doctrinal diversity of Internet Law. It prepares students for complex, real-life practice by showing how actual Internet cases raise interrelated problems from throughout law.
