Primer on Internet Law and Ethics
Posted 09 May 2004 - 08:37 PM
Law is a wide and broad subject, and it's likely that you won't find specific answers to questions that you might have in this forum. Laws surrounding the internet are in their infancy and likely are going to have just as many questions around them as answers. But you might find some legal information that can broaden your knowledge, open your eyes to possibilities, and give you a different perspective.
If you have a specific legal problem, your best option is to probably talk to an attorney, but we can share legal information here, and discuss the shape and nature of internet law and regulations.
We've covered quite a few topics in this forum. I've come up with some lists of many of them. Some of them have only begun to scratch the surface of the issues involved. But I figured that if we gave some organization to these posts, we might be able to use them as a springboard for new discussions.
