Mike Godwin is a twenty-first-century crusader for free speech. As online counsel to the Electronic Frontier Foundation, Godwin is often the one who gets the first panicked calls from Internet bulletin board operators or private citizens when their apartments are searched and computers seized. Deeply involved in civil liberties on the Net, Godwin shares his personal experience as a lawyer in the fight against the controversial Communications Decency Act of 1996. He provides expert analysis of the disturbing case of Jake Baker, whose short stories about rape-torture, published in an Internet newsgroup, resulted in the seizure of his dorm-room computer. Godwin also brings new insight to the Church of Scientology's claims of intellectual property and copyright infringement, popular Web writers Brock Meeks's and Matt Drudge's encounters with libel law, and Phillip Zimmerman's important fight for the freedom to use encryption software. Godwin offers practical guidelines on how to participate in life on the Net with rules for making virtual communities work, the good citizen's guide to copyright on the Web, and how to hack the media to defend freedoms online.

About the author (1998)

Mike Godwin is the author of Cyber Rights : Defending Free Speech in the Digital Age. A current and highly controversial topic, Godwin discusses the Communications Decency Act of 1996, Time's Cyberporn issue, and libel conflicts experienced by journalists on the Internet. Each important event is carefully detailed, with the ramifications for restricting free speech. This book is more than just a dry legal account; it is highly readable and contains stories that could affect the rights of everyone. Godwin serves as counsel to the Electronic Frontier Foundation, and is an activist for free speech in cyberspace. He has appeared in several important Internet cases, including the defeat of the aforementioned Communications Decency Act of 1996.
