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 News.com and the BNA email list.
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 News.com. Essential daily reading.
LLRX.com 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.
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.
