Office Hours: Please sign up for time on a sign-up sheet kept by Catherine Bracy in the Berkman Center, which is housed in Baker House, 1587 Massachusetts Ave, near the northwest edge of the Law School campus. Office hours will be held from 1:00 - 3:00 on Thursdays during the 2004 Fall semester.
Classroom: Hauser 102.
Textbook: The assigned textbook for this course is Ronald J. Mann and Jane K. Winn, Electronic Commerce (Aspen Law and Business, 2002). Two copies of this textbook are on reserve in the Law School Library. I also recommend that you buy William W. Fisher, III, Promises to Keep: Technology, Law, and the Future of Entertainment (Stanford Law and Politics, 2004), which will be in the Coop as soon as it comes out. Optional, but highly worthwhile: One can always benefit from reading Lawrence Lessig, Code and Other Laws of Cyberspace (Basic Books, 1999), though it is not required.
Grading: Students will be evaluated on the basis of:
Food for Thought Dinners: The Berkman Center invites you to join us for dinner this term for informal discussions among students taking the various cyberlaw-related courses offered at HLS this Fall. Berkman Center faculty, staff and fellows will also participate in these dinners on an ad hoc basis. No homework is required and the dinners are not required or graded in any way. Please contact Wendy Koslow at the Berkman Center (e-mail: wkoslow at cyber.law.harvard.edu) if you are interested in signing up for a FFT Dinner or, better yet, access this web app.
