Greg Lastowka on the law in virtual worlds

Rutgers law professor Greg Lastowka has written extensively on law in virtual worlds, and his work has been published, on paper, in law reviews from coast to coast. Now he has substantially revised and expanded his earlier articles into a 241-page book titled Virtual Justice: The New Laws of Online Worlds, published by Yale University Press. Though the book is a law book, Professor Lastowka's writing is extremely polished and readable. Virtual Justice is for lawyers, but it's also suitable for any of their teenage children -- especially those who spend time themselves in virtual worlds. Surprisingly, the entire book is online, free. Properly printed and bound copies also are available, for those who prefer their books that way.
