The Internet changes everything. Or does it? Courts, legislatures, and regulators have all had to face this question in dealing with cyberspace. Determining how existing legal concepts should apply, if at all, to cyberspace is a problem that recurs in numerous areas of law. This course will explore this problem in several different areas, including, contracts, torts, criminal law, privacy law, the First Amendment, property and intellectual property. There are no formal prerequisites, and no technical background is required.
