Front Cover
Aspen Publishers, Incorporated, 2006 - Law - 655 pages
Early adopters of CYBERSPACE LAW: Cases and Materials were particularly
pleased by how flexible, coherent, and practical the book is. Now strengthened
and scrupulously updated for its Second Edition, this engaging casebook can
help your students understand one of the most dynamic areas of law.
Written and structured for maximum effectiveness, the book:
can be used successfully in both introductory and advanced courses
uses practical, classroom-tested "real world" problems to help students apply
existing rules to cyberspace law
features a flexible, logical organization that allows instructors to emphasize
selected perspectives
is designed for currency, with materials organized around competing approaches
and theories for any given issue, rather than current leading cases
presents current Internet law as well as related policy concerns that will
drive future legal analysis when new issues emerge -- the only casebook to
address both areas
offers a balanced presentation of competing approaches and theories for each

excellent selection of cases
simplifies class preparation with an extremely thorough Teacher's Manual that
