The Future of the Internet and How to Stop It

The Future of the Internet and How to Stop It

This is a free, online textbook.  In the preface, Lawrence Lessig states, "JOnathan Zittrain's book is a much-needed antidote to this self-imposed blindness.  It changes the whole debate about law and the Internet.  It radically reorients the work of the Net's legal scholars.  Rather than trying to ignore the uncomfortable parts of wha the Net has become, Zittrain puts the crud right in the center.  And he then builds an understanding of the Net, and the computers that made the Net possible, that explains how so much good and so much awful could come through the very same wires, and more important, what we must do to recapture the good."
