Digital Law Online

InSite recently wrote about the Digital Law Online website. From Insite:
Professor Lee A. Hollaar created Digital Law Online to provide free public access to online copyright treatises and important copyright documents, as well as other self-authored papers. Prof. Hollaar, a faculty member of the School of Computing at the University of Utah, teaches computer networking, intellectual property, and computer law. The website currently makes available Prof. Hollaar's Legal Protection of Digital Information, William Patry's Copyright Law and Practice, and the National Commission on New Technological Uses of Copyrighted Works (CONTU) Final Report. Legal Protection of Digital Information includes links to all cases and statutes cited therein. Both the full-text of this treatise, as well as all cases cited, are keyword searchable. Copyright Law and Practice provides an extensive history of copyright law. The CONTU Final Report, published in 1978, is a frequently cited document, available here in both HTML and PDF. Digital Law Online is a solid resource for students of copyright law.
