South Korea’s Kyungpook National University Law School opened in March , 2009 and will specialize in IT law. It will be interesting to see if other Korean graduate level law schools also market themselves so narrowly.
Juriscom.net and Le Forum des droits sur l’internet provide timely access to full-text or synopses of information technology, Internet and IP law decisions from French (and occasionally Belgium) courts, including courts of first instance, courts of appeals and the Court of Cassation. Le forum des droits sur l’internet adds keywords to all decisions, thereby facilitating subject access to the case law. Both sites also offer news reports and articles. All materials are available in French only. Merci beaucoup to our friends in France for making this case law available to us free of charge.
I ran across an interesting article by way of a tangentially related Google search today. The June 12, 2008 issue of The New York Review of Books includes the following item, “The Library in the New Age,” a lengthy discussion of changes in information technology (from the dawn of the written word through Internet search engines), which culminates in an eight-point discussion of how Google Book Search will make physical libraries “more important than ever.” Written by Robert Darnton, it’s an interesting addition to the scholarship of the digital age.
