"Just as the Internet combines, and makes accessible, information in new ways, and makes new sources of information available, the Internet also has engendered new legal issues, changed existing areas of law, and created hybrid legal subjects in ways previously unimagined. New legal claims may be brought for which there are no corollaries in the physical world, such as those involving spoofing, spamming, phishing, pharming, metatags, keyword sales and sponsored links, and domain names. In addition, the Internet has changed more traditional areas of law, such as securities and banking. Cyberspace law also has reinvigorated moribund legal principles, such as the doctrine of vicarious copyright liability . . . More than anything else, the field of Internet law has shown the enduring value of the common law. Centuries old doctrines such as trespass have found new applications in suits over spamming and the use of bots to repeatedly and automatically access websites and databases."
