Interesting, educational, but OLD hat
This book was required for a graduate course I took in 'cyberlaw' in 2003. Problem: This book only covers Cyberlaw extensively up to about 1992. After that it only mentions laws that have passed up to 1994. For a topic that is inherently derived from the use of the Internet this doesn't strike me as being very up-to-date.
However, seeing as we used this text in our class I guess that means there aren't too many good texts out there on the subject. Maybe this is your best bet. But, it really is outdated.
Rating: 5 out of 5
Cyber Law is an eye-opener for anyone who plans to start a web based business. I found it quite informative and helpful as far as giving guidelines on how to stay clear of making the usual legal mistakes any new entrepreneur or business owner may make.
I strongly recommend reading this book if you plan to use the internet for more than Email. It will be a guide to help in protecting yourself.
The Author, Jonathan Rosenoer is a Lawyer and an authority on online resources and legal issues.

A magnum opus piece of novel work
The author should have given more emphasis on the international agreements and policies rather than going deep into legislating the law of the internet. This is because there is no such condusive laws in this particular area of law just yet.
