The IT Law Wiki

Welcome to the IT Law Wiki!

This wiki is an encyclopedia of the legal issues, cases, statutes, events, policies, people, organizations and publications that make up the global fields of information law, information technology law (often referred to as "computer law," "cyberlaw" or "Internet law") and telecommunications law. The wiki focuses on the laws, regulations and policy issues that impact the information, IT and telecommunications industries and those government entities, industries, organizations and people that control or use information, IT and telecommunications.

NOTICE: The materials contained in the IT Law Wiki are provided for informational and educational purposes only and are not to be construed as legal advice.


This wiki is intended for use by legal professionals. Please conduct yourself accordingly.

PLEASE NOTE: We do NOT allow links to external commercial sites, law firms, products or services. Those links will be removed immediately.

STATUTES: If you want to link to a statute, please link to the statute as it appears on a non-commercial site, such as the Cornell ( or Findlaw ( sites. Do NOT link to a copy of a statute on a law firm or other commercial site. Those links will be removed immediately since they tend not to be kept up-to-date.

CASE SUMMARIES: For case summaries we allow only a summary of the court's opinion. We do not permit comments, opinions of participants or other materials that are not part of the court's opinion to be included in the article. Any such materials will be removed immediately. If you want to provide your opinion on the court's decision or have a discussion about the case, please click on the "Talk" tab at the top of the case summary and place your comments there. We prefer that case cites also include a link to the court's decision as it appears on Google Scholar ( (if available). Also, we prefer that case citations conform to the latest edition of the Harvard Blue Book.
