Douglas K. Moll, Robert A. Ragazzo. The law of closely held corporations. Wolters Kluwer Law & Business, 2009.

KF1466.M66

 

As legislatures have come to recognize the distinct needs of closely held corporations, the law in this area has become unique. This book encompasses all of the major transactional and litigation issues that practitioners are likely to face. Covering relevant federal and state laws and regulations, it gives insights into successful business structures that help avoid conflict down the road. Additionally it includes expert information into the latest developments and detailed transactional forms and litigation pleadings. 

 

 

 

 

 

Dawn C. Nunziato. Virtual freedom : net neutrality and free speech in the Internet age. Stanford Law Books, c2009.

KF4772.N86 2009

 

This book takes a critical look at recent changes in free speech law in which only the government need refrain from censoring speech, while companies are permitted to self-regulate. By enabling Internet providers to exercise control over content, the Supreme Court and the FCC have failed to protect the public's right to access a broad diversity of content. Nunziato argues that regulation is necessary to ensure the free flow of information and to render the First Amendment meaningful in the twenty-first century. The book offers an urgent call to action, recommending immediate steps to preserve our free speech rights online.
