The Fifth Edition of Cyberspace Law: Cases and Materials reflects the broad knowledge and experience of a pioneer in the teaching of Cyberspace law. This was the first casebook devoted exclusively to the study of cyberspace law and is the only one that presents the study of cyberspace law as the study of the creation, dissemination, and acquisition of human thought, creativity, and information in the digital age. The organization of the casebook also allows instructors to adapt the materials to their approaches.   

Through real world problems students are encouraged to approach the materials as attorneys responding to needs of clients and makers of policy, rather than as passive readers of judicial opinions. The Fifth Edition reflects all major changes in the subject including extensive additions of U.S. Supreme Court decisions discussing personal jurisdiction, freedom of speech, intellectual property, and privacy, and lower court decisions addressing Google Books and Net Neutrality.
