Legal Rights on the Net

I thought I will share this interesting book I am reading titled “Cyber Rights-Defending Free Speech in the Digital Age” by Mike Godwin. As the name suggests, Mike in this book discusses free speech and first amendment issues like libel, malice, copyright, privacy on the Net and the laws relating to these issues. Towards the end of the book he talks about the Communication and Decency Act of 1996. What I do like about this book is that all the legal issues that Mike has dealt with are analyzed well but written in a story telling style which makes it easy and interesting to read, which might be due to the fact that Mike was a journalist before becoming a lawyer and started working for the Washington D.C. based Center for Democracy and Technology.
