This course will examine the development, regulation and impact of the Internet in American society. In particular, we will focus on the expanding legal implications of this still relatively new technology and how the judicial and political apparatuses are trying to keep pace with the Internet's ever-expanding influence in our society. This course will cover the history of the Internet, court cases applying existing laws to the Internet, legislative attempts at additional regulation and theoretical concerns over the technological implications the Internet poses to deeply rooted legal concepts such as fair use.
