About the book:

By far the best-documented and most level-headed, readable, and informative book yet on the subject of freedom of speech on the Internet. Wallace and Mangan provide blow-by-blow chapters detailing the backgrounds and legal proceedings in each of the primary landmark U.S. episodes to date:

Memphis vs. Robert Thomas' Amateur Action pornography BBS
U.S. Government vs. Phillip Zimmerman's PGP
The University of Michigan student's snuff postings
Stratton stockbrokerage vs. Prodigy
The Church of Scientology vs. the world, in attempts to squelch anti-Scientology discussions on the Net
Comon sense vs. Martin Rimm's so-called "quantitative analyses" of Net pornography
Candyland's Bomb recipe pages
U.S. Senate Communications Decency Act proceedings
and thoughtful analyses of precedents in the legislation of previous telecommunications technologies (telephony, radio, and television)

My only complaint: either the authors (or, more likely, the publishers) opted for a sensationalized title that does not do justice to the much broader coverage actually provided. Highest Recommendation.
