This course examines the legal issues that arise within cyberspace. The topics we will cover include jurisdiction to adjudicate and regulate, online speech, intellectual-property rights (trademarks, copyrights, patents, and related rights), ISP liability, data-privacy protection, cybercrime, and contracting. Because of the nature of cyberspace, comparisons will sometimes be made to the laws of major markets outside the United States when relevant. The course should be particularly useful for students who endeavor to counsel clients either in litigation or transactional context in the media, telecommunications, entertainment, or computer industries, or in any undertaking that has a presence on the Internet. Student evaluation will be by examination.
