Release Notes
With an unusually broad view of free speech, lawyer and advocate Godwin, counsel
to the Electronic Frontier Foundation, brings his opinions to bear on a slate of
Net-related First Amendment cases and policy issues. Citing examples ranging
from the landmark Compuserve ruling, in which the court found that an Internet
service provider was akin to a bookstore and not a publisher in its culpability
for disseminating offensive speech, to the LaMacchia incident, a software piracy
case that was ultimately dismissed, Godwin argues for less government
intervention, displaying a Panglossian view of the Net's potential. In doing so,
he frames nicely some of the issues raised by the encounter of the 200-year-old
Bill of Rights and the cutting-edge Internet. But through much of his book
Godwin sounds defensive, and his polemics often trump nuanced analysis. By the
time he gets to discussing the notorious Time magazine expose on cyberporn,
criticizing the magazine for buying into hype, his arguments have become
predictable--or flimsy, as when he implies that the Net poses no new risks with
its dissemination of dangerous information, such as bomb-making instructions,
because libraries have carried such information for years. Godwin's book is a
thoughtful examination of an important subject, but its thoughts seem too often
filtered through rose-colored screens.
