“CyberLaw is a must-read for anyone doing business-or just chatting or socializing – on the Internet. Without us realizing it, more and more laws are being passed each year, laws and restrictions that significantly increase the likelihood that you’re skirting, or even breaking some laws when you post that restaurant review, write about the bad date you had last week, or complain about a previous employer. Your choices are easy: read CyberLaw or suffer the potential consequences.” — Dave Taylor, Entrepreneur and Strategic Business Consultant, Intuitive.com
