The 2009 edition of Issues In Internet Law: Society, Technology, and the Law has been updated with the latest cases and trends in Internet Law.

Advances in technology have always changed societies, and there has never been as far-reaching and profound an advance as the Internet. Suppose you buy something online; was that online contract you clicked on really enforceable, even if you just scrolled down and did not read it? Is receiving pornography in office e-mail from your co-workers sexual harassment? Can a student be suspended for comments on her Web site about her teacher? Can stalkers find your personal information online? What can you legally put on your Web site? And what's not allowed? Do you really own your domain name? Can a library censor your Internet use? Do you know who's reading your e-mail? Is it legal to gamble online? How "private" is your private information after you disclose it to a Web site? Can you get in trouble for making a gripe site about that business that ripped you off? Is a student exercising his First Amendment rights when he creates a hate Web site on a public school's Internet server? Did you know the Web sites you visit and the words you type into search engines are being 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. Concisely written and covering a broad range of topics, this is the most current book of its kind in print! 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."
