The idea for this book was initially drawn from Lawrence Lessig’s book, Code and Other Laws of Cyberspace (1999), in which the author, in a short passage, makes reference to the threat of network ownership to Internet openness. Since Lessig wrote of this threat, much has transpired, and I owe much appreciation to all the scholars, government officials, journalists, and jurists whose writings helped lead me through the development of this topic.
In addition, I am especially grateful to the many scholars who helped me develop as a mass media law researcher. Richard Kielbowicz, Paul Ashdown, Don Pember, Phil Bereano, and Dorothy Bowles were all particularly inspiring.
