"The book, a compilation of case studies in the protocategory
of Internet law, plus a short chronicle of past attempts to
regulate the world's media, should be required reading for
anyone interested in free speech in modern society."
-The New York Times Book Review
"The book is jammed with recent histories, as well as with
fascinating details of earlier legislation struggles over
technologies such as radio, TV and the telephone, which
it applies to the controversies over the Internet."
-The Chicago Tribune

decisions facing congress and the courts, the authors advocate
a voluntary self-rating system as the only restriction applicable
Wallace and Mangan don't just ponder the question of
censorship, they offer a number of interesting solutions
that avoid trampling all over guarantees of freedom of
speech, press, and religion. They have produced one of
the more important books about cyberspace; it's fresh,
well-researched, and well written."
-The Ottawa Citizen
Jonathan Wallace and Mark Mangan explore the ever-evolving
and always controversial area of law, citing a number of
precedent-setting cases that will boggle the mind of any
supporter of the theory that we should be able to do
what we want as long as no one gets hurt.... this book is
important as a well-researched, fair minded, and utterly
reasonable discussion of just how profound the impact
of broad-based cyber legislation will be unless all stakeholders
do their homework and are willing to listen to each other..."
"What Wallace and Mangan do offer is a series of engaging
stories behind some well-publicized challenges to problematic
speech in cyberspace."
