The offensive Internet : speech, privacy, and reputation ( Book )
8 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and held by 2,303 libraries worldwide
"The Internet has been romanticized as a zone of freedom. The alluring combination of sophisticated technology with low barriers to entry and instantaneous outreach to millions of users has mesmerized libertarians and communitarians alike. Lawmakers have joined the celebration, passing the Communications Decency Act, which enables Internet Service Providers to allow unregulated discourse without danger of liability, all in the name of enhancing freedom of speech. But an unregulated Internet is a breeding ground for offensive conduct. At last we have a book that begins to focus on abuses made possible by anonymity, freedom from liability, and lack of oversight. The distinguished scholars assembled in this volume, drawn from law and philosophy, connect the absence of legal oversight with harassment and discrimination. Questioning the simplistic notion that abusive speech and mobocracy are the inevitable outcomes of new technology, they argue that current misuse is the outgrowth of social, technological, and legal choices. Seeing this clearly will help us to be better informed about our options. In a field still dominated by a frontier perspective, this book has the potential to be a real game changer. Armed with example after example of harassment in Internet chat rooms, blogs, and forums, the authors detail some of the vile and hateful speech that the current combination of law and technology has bred. The facts are then treated to analysis and policy prescriptions. Read this book and you will never again see the Internet through rose-colored glasses."--Jacket

Insuring against Terrorism and Crime by Saul Levmore( Computer File )
3 editions published between 2003 and 2006 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
"This Article argues that the particular mix responses the government has chosen with respect to 9/11, including the September 11th Victims' Compensation Fund and the Terrorism Risk Insurance Act of 2002, will significantly affect private expectations about the government's response to future terrorist attacks. One aim of this Article is to explore the relationships between promised or expected government actions (or inactions) and private decisions regarding terrorism risk. These issues lead to some novel ideas about the role of government in insuring against terrorism - and then against crime more generally. Part II provides some background on the response of the private insurance market and the federal government to the losses resulting from September 11th. Part III looks at the positive question of how government and private actors should be expected to respond to the losses of 9/11 and to the prospect of future such losses. It explores the interactions among government relief and charitable responses to 9/11 as well as the existence or absence of private insurance, and draws contrasts between terrorism disasters and natural disasters, as well as between 9/11 and prior terror attacks. Part III also analyzes the circumstances in which episodic relief of the 9/11 variety will lead to (or be replaced by) more permanent, routinized relief, as is available in some other countries. Part IV takes up the normative question of the optimal mix of government and private relief (including insurance) for terrorism-related losses. It provides a skeptical view of government intervention in property insurance markets, quite generally, and of the particular federal terrorism reinsurance regime that Congress recently adopted. Part V then broadens the inquiry by asking whether the case for government-sponsored insurance against crime, which is to say a much broader set of crimes than terrorism alone, is at least as sound as that for terrorism-related risks. Part VI concludes."

The Internet's anonymity problem by Saul Levmore( file )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
"There is the well known problem, or reality, of juvenile and destructive communication on the Internet, normally engaged in behind the protective cover of anonymity. Is this somehow a different problem on the Internet than it is elsewhere and, if so, are there solutions that are effective and justifiable? This CBI affords an opportunity to think about the subject, if it is that, of "Internet Law. It introduces the idea of a hypothetical bargain among citizens or communicants, as a means of thinking about likely, or perhaps desirable, regulation and practice. It then grapples with the question of whether the interest in, or legal rule protecting, free speech trumps this bargain, or democratic solution...This lecture was recorded November 11, 2008 as part of the Chicagos Best Ideas series."--Law School faculty podcast webpage

Intermediation and intervention by Saul Levmore( Computer File )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
"What can law do well? It tries to "intervene" in order to control antisocial behavior, to enforce promises, and to prevent violence. But it is also called on to "intermediate" so that citizens need not confront one another directly and need not even control themselves. It solves collective action problems, to be sure, but in many cases these problems are small compared to the quest for control over one's future self. If we can identify what it is we want law to do, rather than how we market its ever-expanding reach, we might be better at designing laws. In such diverse areas as climate change, obesity control, and neighborly (tort) disputes, this CBI Lecture aims to show that some of the most important tools of legal analysis suggest changes in law and new ways of thinking about the expanding regulatory state."--Law School faculty podcast webpage
