I bought this book a while ago because honestly, I used to admire the author. His First Amendment advocacy credentials were solid, though nothing special compared to others in the field, and I thought the sex.com litigation was really interesting considering the sort of nebulous status a domain name has a property, especially in relationship to trademark law.

It was an interesting read, mostly for the subject matter. The writing itself wasn't spectacular--it's well edited, so you no glaring grammar or spelling errors like you'd see from bad fan fiction, but the organization and style don't really add much to make the material exciting.

Now I sincerely regret putting a few bucks in the author's pocket. Though he styles himself as a so-called "white hat," if you look at the public records on his most recent, prominent case, he's basically defending a copyright infringer by filing frivolous defamation lawsuits against the guy whose work was stolen because he had the audacity to publicly complain about his work being stolen. I would not be surprised if the California bar decides to bring sanctions against him for filing motions with no basis in fact or law.

I would never recommend that anyone steal someone else's copyrighted work, but if someone did pirate Carreon's work, and then sued him for complaining about it, I imagine the irony would be lost on him.

Moreover, Carreon's later dishonesty and lack of integrity makes me question how honest the contents of this book really was. We know from the public record who won, what evidence and arguments were presented, and what side the court came down on, but I no longer know whether to believe Carreon's version of events leading up to the case.

I read this book recently after reading about the case on Mr. Carrion's website. I was intrigued. I was able to get about a third of the way through before becoming utterly uninterested. The prose is very pedantic and the author seems pretensious. I would not recommend this book.

I had to read this book for class. To me, it was badly organized and read more like a propaganda piece than a factual account. I felt that the language around every piece of information was so loaded that rendered the book almost entirely useless. This is, in my opinion, not so much an account as an editorial, a panageryic, and a daydream.

Curiosity brought me to the book, and like the kitty before me, killed my curiosity into the "realm" of the serious business that is the internets. My best advice to anyone wanting a chance to open the wardrobe doors and enter the Narnia that is Charles Carreon, go to your local used bookstore and find a copy (I'm certain there is a plethora of them there) and see what hard earned cash I may have just saved you.

You'll thank me silently at night.

I purchased this book a little over a year ago, Partly to read, partly to cut a hole in the centre of the front cover to make bedtime reading a little more 'interesting'. However after I had finished reading the book, I told one of my friends that it wasn't very good, so I had donated it to my local charity shop. Imagine my shock and surprise when 12 months later I received a personal letter from the author Charles Carreon, demanding £15,000 for not liking his book...he is also now sueing my local Loros as well

I would advise all potential purchasers not to buy this book just in case the same thing happens to you.

This "white hat" is currently suing the American Cancer Society for having the gall to accept a donation from somebody he doesn't like. There's one lie in the title. The rest of the book, I'm sure, is filled with many more.

this author represents a client who sues when artists come to claim their rightful work. he claims that he is being harassed by the internet. perhaps he should do some introspection. last time i checked, what he does for a living (litigation for settlements) isn't much different than harassment.

I bought this book, and tried reading it, but shortly in, my cat developed a serious case of full-body-aids-cancer.

I would not recommend this book.
