I thank Dean Camille Nelson of the American University Washington College of Law (WCL) for research funding that supported the development of this project.

David McGee, WCL ’19 provided valuable research assistance.

This material also benefited from my conversations with Professor Egon Guttman, whom I have always been proud to call not only a colleague but also a mentor and a friend; and from the example and the enthusiasm of the late Charles R. (“Chas”) Merrill, who in 1990 invited me to become an original member of his Computer and High Technology Law Group at Newark, NJ’s McCarter & English.
