“A valuable practitioner's guide to the...law of the Internet. It portrays the law as it is, a still evolving system in all it's complexity and contradiction.”
—Esther Dyson, President and EDventure Holding's Former Chair; ICANN Board and Former Chair; and Board Member Emeritus, Electronic Frontier Foundation
