Computer Law Seminar Readings

This list will grow as the quarter progresses. Many of these materials were written for lawyers, which means they presume some familiarity with legal terms and concepts. Of course I encourage you to note unfamiliar terms and bring them to class so I can (try to) clarify them.

I have made the non-Web references listed below available in the grad course materials file (the upper left drawer in the filing cabinet outside the ICS kitchen).

There won't be as many readings on other topics as there are on intellectual property; there's more settled computer law in IP than in most other areas.

Intellectual Property




Trade Secret/Trademark


Litigation and Evidence

Telecommunications Act of 1996
