"I feel that this book is invaluable and a must read not only for my management team and all of my employees, but also my clients. I especially appreciated the text from actual agreement examples, as well as the discussions of provisions that followed them. I encourage anyone and everyone to buy and read this book twice. The first time to show you everything you have been doing wrong, and the second time to learn how to do it right the next time." —Jim Teece, President and Chief Executive Officer, Project A, Inc.

"This book is rich in content and practical advice. It is filled with informative?as well as entertaining?descriptions of the latest developments in cyberlaw. Most importantly, it gives anyone interested in doing business on the Web the know–how to avoid costly legal pitfalls and problems." —Ray August, Professor of Business Law ([external URL]
"What I really like about this book is that it takes a business approach to Internet issues. This is a book for business people with an eye to the bottom line, and how businesses can capitalize on the Web and not get entangled in legal issues. The Internet Legal Guide is essential reading for small business owners, who can not afford the luxury of an in–house legal counsel. A savvy business owner will find this book a road map to turn the Web from threat to opportunity." —Kevin Talbert, Chief Information Officer, Southern Oregon University
"The New Economy is arriving. Even as the stock market and businesses adjust to absorb the ′irrational exuberance′ of the late 1990s, consumers and businesses continue unabated in their march to use technology and the Internet to reduce costs, to increase profits, to improve service, to increase choice, and generally to increase the efficiency and potential of all that we do. Dennis Powers has written a timely and informative book to help prepare the nonlawyer, and even to educate lawyers, to prepare for and benefit from this new online world." —Richard Keck, Partner, Telecommunications and Electronic Commerce Practice Group, Troutman Sanders LLP
"A wonderful book that melds the practical into the legal, so we all can navigate our virtual twenty–first–century operations through today?s legal–infested waters. I wish I had had it two years ago!! I could have saved a lot of time and legal costs when I was organizing my Internet company. It?s so convenient and efficient to have all the material in one place. (The good news is I can still save and benefit from the many excellent ideas.)" —Charles "Hop" Fuhrmann, Chairman, HealthyPlace.com, Inc.; Chairman and CEO, Texaco Limited
