I am excitedly planning to read Jonathan Zittrain’s new book, The Future of the Internet and How to Stop it. It’s out in a free Creative Commons licensed version, linked above, as well as one you can buy through places like Amazon.
If you don’t recognize Jonathan’s name, you haven’t been following Internet legal issues for very long. Here’s a link to his Wikipedia entry if you want to catch up on all he’s done in this area.
I will report back once I’ve had an opportunity to read and digest the thoughts in the new book.
