PDF of the full Table of Contents
AVAILABLE: Ver. 4.0 -Fully revised and released July 2014.
4.0 features over twenty new cases and other principal materials,
including a new chapter on software patents, extensive coverage of NSA
surveillance, and significantly expanded discussion of network
neutrality. Also new are materials on Bitcoin, the right to be
forgotten in the E.U., and venue in criminal prosecutions. Other
sections have been substantially reworked, with updated coverage of the
Fourth Amendment in the wake of Riley v. California and Section 230 after Jones v. Dirty World.
Questions throughout have been sharpened, and the technical
introduction now features a section on the basics of cryptography. An
excellent book that just keeps getting better!
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.
