Libel Law in the Internet Age

Libel is one of the many legal issues that online publishers need to be
aware of. Today, Law.com published an interesting exploration of this
topic: Dot-Libel, by Cameron Stracher. It's taking a long time for libel
law to catch up with the Net, but Stracher says there is some movement in
that direction. Also, the global and public nature of this communications
channel means that unexpected legal precendents might apply  including
some from other countries.

COVER STORY: Summer of Surveillance

Playing nightly this summer on your television screen -- and all live, all
the time, on the Internet -- Big Brother, Europe's pop-culture phenomenon,
is coming to America on CBS. The bold new face of Reality TV portrays the
invasion of privacy as a form of entertainment.
