> Law by Lawrence Rosen.
A note of caution about this one: Lawrence Rosen is legal counsel to
the failed Open Source Initiative (which is dangerous because it
claimed to have "no position" on so-called "intellectual property")
and the author of two licences that debian contributors don't much
like: I think it was because they seem to make distributors
responsible for ensuring users enter into a contract.
I've not reviewed either book and I'm not a lawyer, but I think you
should look at the author's background when considering their advice.
Good recommendation of First Monday. I've liked reading it in the
past. Their current issue has a lot of interesting articles too,
including one on accountability. Not quite the same as liability, but
might interest some.
