About the Author

Internet Lawyer Mike Young started programming computers nearly 30 years ago with an Atari 400. By high school, he was writing text-based adventure games on an Apple IIe and coding in COBOL on a Wang system. Instead of getting an MBA after undergrad, Mike went to Southern Methodist University (SMU) for his first law degree. While a law student, he dabbled in online bulletin board systems (BBSs), the precursor for today’s social networking. After getting his Juris Doctor, Mike earned an advanced international law degree (LL.M.) from Georgetown University Law Center. Shortly after he began practicing traditional business law, Mike represented his first Internet business law client in the mid-90s. Today, his practice focuses on helping entrepreneurs protect and grow their businesses primarily online. President of the Internet Attorneys Association and Chairman of the Internet Ethics Council, Mike considers himself to be an “Ethopportunist,” that is, one who looks for ethical opportunities to build successful enterprises. An entrepreneur at heart, Mike has owned or co-owned 14 different privately held companies. This means legal advice provided by him is based both on the law and real world experience as a business owner.

Thank you, Mike Young, for writing a book about Internet law that people without a law degree can understand!

Internet Laws is a fabulous resource written in accessible language and full of pertinent examples for those of us doing business on the Internet. While Mr. Young naturally makes the disclaimer that his book cannot replace legal advice, he's provided a wealth of solid, helpful information here. If you want to feel confident about your online business endeavors, you need this book.

Internet Laws has earned a place of honor (and will stay within easy reach) on my resource shelf, between the style guides and the motivational books!

I've known Mike Young for more than 10 years. He's been my business attorney and is a client (I designed and laid out this book's interior for him).

Unlike many lawyers who write books for a general business audience, Mike Young should be praised for keeping the writing simple and easy to follow. He avoids unnecessary legalese and peppers the text with practical examples to illustrate his concepts.

The book covers a wide range of topics likely to be encountered by small business owners and entreprenuers operating on the Internet. While not getting into extreme depth on any one topic, Young offers practical advice for staying out of trouble online.

This book certainly won't teach you how to defend yourself in court, but you might learn how to avoid ending up there in the first place. And that's real value here for most readers--learning how to stay out of trouble by raising your awareness of potential liabilities.

The author obviously believes that it's better to be informed about potential consequences than remain ignorant and vulnerable, especially when your business, your finances, your privacy and even your personal freedom may be at stake. As you read through the book, you'll notice that Attorney Young maintains a conservative approach to online activity and usually errs on the side of caution.

Because Young writes as an attorney and speaks from his position as advocate for the reader, his tone can sometimes seem a bit paranoid and alarmist. This not necessarily a criticism of Young. He cites numerous examples of the potential consequences of risky online practices, especially where federal and state laws are concerned.

I was expecting some real meat in this book and actual documents and forms I could potentially use. I was particularly put off by links to sites wanting you to buy something (e.g. a link to a Forms Generation web site - where you can purchase software for $197). This is very much a book promoting the author and his products. I was particularly put off by a section at the end of the book - Save $25 Today - where you can immediately save $25 (more than the book cost) when you BUY products from a particular site. By the way, I have no idea what those products actually cost because that web site is broken. The guy can't even keep this web site running. He also provides a link to his own private website - which IS up and running - where you can get a lawyer (the author) so you can protect your website. Wait, though, the subtitle of the book was How to Protect Your Business Website Without a Lawyer. Hmmm - what's wrong with this picture?

Waste of my $15.

Hello -
My name is Mark Call and I am an Internet Marketing Coach, Speaker and Author.

This is a MUST read for ANYONE that is doing business on-line.

Mike explains the risk/reward in every chapter in easy to understand "plain" language!
He did not write this in Fancy LEGAL terms and breaks EVERYTHING down for you!

I will be "REQUIRING" all of my students to have and READ a copy of this!

This, to me ... id the BLUEPRINT - before you put anything on-line!
If you already have a website ... you NEED this!

I cannot say in WORDS how this has changed the way I will do business now and in the future!

The best part is ... it is EASY to implement in a matter of days!

Thank You Mike Young, this is a breath of fresh air!

- Mark Call

Straightforward, easy to understand, and educational for the "limited" computer literate elder citizen that grew-up w/o computers or website.
Raise questions and provided answers I would have never considered.

A trustworthy and simple approach with the "Pros & Cons" easily identified. A must read before diving into the waters of Internet E-Business. Even if you intend to get a lawyer it establishes the agenda you need to discuss saving time and probably money.

Online promotion of business has become an important part of small business marketing today. Whether it's the website, blog or using social media knowing what is and isn't legal is important to protecting one's business.

Mike Young as an Internet lawyer understands the importance of online marketing as part of marketing for small business owners. Not everyone can afford the services of an Internet attorney.

This book may not replace the services of an attorney, but it does offer easy to understand guidelines to keep the business owner and his business out of legal troubles (if you choose to follow the suggestions.) The book is a great reference about the details you need to understand while promoting online.
