The third edition of The Law of Internet Speech by Madeleine Schachter and Joel Kurtzberg updates and contextualizes recent developments in Internet law. The book explores the application of analytical models of First Amendment jurisprudence to Internet communications and examines the regulation of Internet content in such contexts as incitement, speech that promotes or facilitates criminal acts, true threats, matters relating to national security, obscenity, indecency, and child pornography.

The Law of Internet Speech also examines claims of on-line defamation, including an analysis of ISP immunities under Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act and claims involving anonymous communications. A section on privacy interests explores the application of common law privacy torts to digital media, the implications of data mining and on-line profiling, and regulatory and statutory approaches to privacy protections. Authors Schachter and Kurtzberg also address proprietary interests in content, including copyright infringement and trademark claims, disputes relating to domain names, and the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. Application of these concepts is further explored in the context of linking, framing, and metataging. A glossary of Internet terms is also included.
