• CLEAR & CONCISE: Tight case editing, focused questions, and topical problems direct students’ attention to the most critical issues. The book covers the full sweep of the subject, but is still short enough that the core topics can be taught in a 3-credit survey course.
• UP-TO-DATE COVERAGE: The eleventh edition includes the Supreme Court’s October Term 2020 decisions in Google v. Oracle (on fair use of APIs), Mahanoy Area School District v. B.L (on school discipline for online speech), and Van Buren v. United States (on the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act). The Content Moderation section now features the Facebook Oversight Board’s landmark decision in In re Trump. There are also new cases on politicians blocking constituents on social media, the Americans with Disabilities Act and Amazon’s liability as a seller. Other changes have been made throughout, with updated terminology and revisions to numerous notes and questions with late-breaking cases and other new developments.
• TECHNICAL AND HISTORICAL NOTES: Mini-essays throughout the book provide the essential technical background needed to make sense of computer and Internet technologies. Where modern doctrine has important historical roots (e.g., network neutrality and telecommunications regulation), the book gives the necessary context.
