Law Library Books of the Month

Internet Law and Practice

By Thomson/West

Internet Law and Practice is an exciting new West loose-leaf covering a broad spectrum of legal issues that intersect in cyberspace. Over thirty practitioners pooled their expertise to help attorneys, executives, and policymakers understand a multitude of issues that surface online. Major categories covered include: managing an online business, pretrial procedure, intellectual property, free speech, state regulation, crimes, and online security. Related statutory and case law is discussed throughout. A sample of other topics contained in its twenty-seven chapters are: a history of the internet, insurance, tax, cyberbullying, annoying pop-ups, online copyright infringement, free speech, trade secrets, patents, licensing, cybersquatting, domain-name dispute resolution, and trademark rights. Take a few minutes to browse this title along with the rest of our internet law collection.
