LAW 470 - Law And The Internet

The emergence of the internet and digital technologies that enhance our abilities to access, store, manipulate, and transmit vast amounts o finformation has generated a host of new legal issues for which lawyers of the 21st century must be prepared. Although many are trying to apply existing legal concepts onto problems arising in cyberspace, it is increasingly evident that this strategy is not always effective. The course will explore specific problems in applying law to cyberspace in areas such as intellectual property, freedom of speech, privacy, content control, and the bounds of jurisdiction. Familiarity with the internet and intellectual property law is helpful but not required.
