Sex, Laws, and Cyberspace
by Jonathan Wallace and Mark Mangan
Henry Holt and Company, Inc. 1997.
ISBN 0-8050-5298-4

Finally. Somebody has published a well-written, well documented book for the layperson on internet law and recent internet court cases. If you found yourself frustrated and skeptical over some of the internet "action alerts" you may have seen during the CDA, Phil Zimmerman, Marty Rimm, Action BBS, Jake Baker, Prodigy, etc. cases, this is the book for you.

I found it to be thorough but very easy to read, and outlined the consitutional issues and legal maneuverings behind each one of these cases. I learned quite a bit about first ammendment law, and on the structure of our court systems, by reading this book.

I recommended this book. I feel it makes a good companion to Defending Pornography by Nadine Strossen.
