Kathy Bowrey

Law and Internet Cultures
Cambridge University Press, 2005

KF390.5.C6B599

Kathy Bowrey is an Australian legal scholar who brings an original and creative perspective on cyberspace to this study of intellectual property law. She explores the curious legality of Microsoft and Linux, the fetish of iPods, the privateers of the information age, peer to peer networks, and how communications flows affect law and practice. She weaves together legal developments, history of the technology, global governance, patents, and cultural studies to produce a scholarly work that is not a generic text on US law and technology.

 

David G. Schwartz
Cutting the Wire: Gaming Prohibition and the Internet
University of Nevada Press, 2005

KF9440. S39 2005

This book presents the story of the Wire Act of 1961 and examines how a law originally intended to stifle organized crime is currently being used, without success, to control internet gambling. By placing the act within the larger context of American ambivalence about gambling, David Schwartz has produced a provocative analysis of the illogic of an outdated law.
