Eric Goldman Favorite Cyberspace Law Resources

Eric Goldman’s Favorite Cyberspace Law Resources

This is a list of the resources that I consistently use to keep up-to-date in cyberspace law developments.  While I use all of these resources regularly (along with many others), if I had to pick my most heavily-used resources, I’d pick and the BNA email list.

Web Pages

AOL’s Decisions and Litigation page.  My secret resource for finding case law.

Cornell’s Legal Information Institute.  Where I go to get statutes.

C|Net’s  Essential daily reading. Newsstand.  A good aggregation of links.  Links are updated during the day and organized alphabetically (not by time), so it can be a little frustrating finding new additions.

Perkins Coie Internet Case Digest.  Deep summary of case law, but limited links to the full-text of the cases, and there is random coverage of cases.

David Sorkin’s Spam Laws page.  The only website I trust for information on spam laws.

Email Lists

Baker & McKenzie’s E-Law List.  Great international coverage of new developments in both telecom and Internet law.

BNA’s Internet Law News.  This is a wonderful daily resource of news and developments in cyberspace law.  While it can be redundant with other sources, it’s a great foundational resource.

CNI-Copyright.  If you’re a copyright wonk, you’ll love this list.  Otherwise, it can be maddeningly arcane and redundant.

Cyberia-l.  A very noisy list often filled with personal attacks and irrelevant rants, but still a key resource for seeing what others are thinking about.  Also, it attracts a fair number of engineers and other non-lawyers.

Cyberprof.  A restricted entry list (only available to professors of cyberspace law) operated by Professor Mark Lemley of Boalt.
