About Greplaw

What the hell is this crap?

Greplaw is a production of the Berkman Center for Internet & Society. The Berkman Center for Internet & Society is a research program founded to explore cyberspace, share in its study, and help pioneer its development. Greplaw's goal is to create a frequently updated, highly interactive forum for the dissemination and discussion of legal news concerning information technology. We aim to bring together the top legal minds in the field and the technology-oriented individuals and organizations whose activities are the subject of IT law.

The idea for Greplaw was born when some bright folks at the Berkman Center decided that the concept behind the popular Slashdot [ http://www.slashdot.org/ ] technology news site would also work well for legal discussion. As you may or may not have guessed, Greplaw.org runs on the opensource software called Slashcode, which also drives Slashdot.

Who are you guys, anyway?

Greplaw is run by Berkman Center students, staff, and affiliates. However, we also rely heavily on public participation in our news gathering functions. Going forward, we are very open to other kinds of participation in our project from students, laywers, and others without connection to the Berkman Center. For a current list of our active participants, please see our Staff Page [ http://grep.law.harvard.edu/staff.shtml ].

Can I Get Some Legal Advice?

No. Greplaw cannot and does not offer legal advice.
