C.1.         Who Is Midnight Networks?






Welcome to The Legal List!


Armed with your computer in its holster, you are about to swagger into an adventure on a new frontier.  Like other frontiers that have come before, the world of the Internet isn't so much a place, as it is the embodiment of a pioneering spirit to explore the unknown.  And with this exploration comes an excited anticipation of the way the future is developing.


Yet, there's also something vaguely discomforting about this adventure.  For while the Internet offers the potential for new levels of freedom and individualism, this frontier also offers the potential for lawlessness and destruction.


This book is about the law on this new electronic frontier—what it is and where to find it.  As you use this book, don't be alarmed if you notice gaping holes in the information about the law available on the 'net.  This is not due to oversight on the part of the author.  This is due to the time delay we are experiencing as the law tries to catch up with the early settlers on the frontier.


And that's exactly what you are.  Like the cowboys and astronauts who came before you, you are paving the way for those who will follow.  These are exciting and rapidly changing times for those of us using electronic communications.  Hopefully, you'll find this book helps to make sense of the law, even as it develops around you.

Chapter 0.  Introduction to "The Legal List."


0.0.                Introduction to the Introduction.


This chapter describes, e.g., how to get "The Legal List."  If you are trying to get a copy of "The Legal List," you can avoid many problems by reading and following these directions.  This is true not only of "The Legal List" but also of all of the resources it describes.  (For example, you may get "The Legal List" via anonymous FTP from as pub/LegalList/legallist.txt, but you may NOT TELNET to this site.  See Section 0.7.3 for details.)


Since "The Legal List" ITSELF is a law-related resource on the Internet, I list a few resources that do not THEMSELVES contain any Internet resource (e.g. only a USPS mailing address may be provided).  This is, however, the exception rather than the rule.


Within each listing, the resources in "The Legal List" are listed in order of ease-of-accessibility.  The resources that are easiest to access are listed first.  For example, the user of a commercial online service (such as CompuServe, GEnie, or America Online) may have access to Internet e-mail but may not have FTP or Telnet access.  To this user, the e-mail servers are the most useful.  Also, I have tried to list free services before paid services.  Finally, I have included appendices of general Internet information that is not necessarily law-related.  The following is a summary of the contents of "The Legal List":


Chapter 1.  Corporations and Organizations.  This chapter describes law-related resources made available by for-profit, nonprofit, and not-for-profit corporations and organizations.  An organization in this chapter would most likely have a domain name ending in ".com" (commercial) or ".org" (organization).  Law firms are listed separately--sorted by the state (or country) of their main office.


Chapter 2.  Government Organizations.  This chapter describes law-related resources made available by US government organizations.  An organization in this chapter would most likely have a domain name ending in ".gov" (government).  This chapter is divided into four sub-sections:  1) US Federal Executive Branch, 2) US Federal Judicial Branch, 3) US Federal Legislative Branch, and 4) US State Government Organizations.


Chapter 3.  Educational Institutions.  This chapter describes law-related resources made available by US educational institutions.  An organization in this chapter would most likely have a domain name ending in ".edu" (education).  This chapter is divided into two sub-sections:  1) US law schools, 2) other US educational institutions.


Chapter 4.  Listserv Lists.  This chapter describes law-related listserv lists   These lists are like magazines in that one can subscribe and unsubscribe.  There are lists for a wide range of law-related interests such as intellectual property (CNI-Copyright), fathers' rights (FREE-L), and issues of interest to law students (LawSch-L).


Chapter 5.  Non-US Resources.  This chapter describes law-related resources made available by non-US organizations, governments, and educational institutions--including those made available by the United Nations.


Chapter 6.  Journals, FAQs, Usenet Newsgroups, Etc.  This chapter lists law-related journals, files of frequently-asked questions (FAQs), and Usenet newsgroups.  Usenet is the news network that is intertwined with, but independent from, the Internet.  A resource is listed in this chapter if it is primarily made available by an individual (or by individuals) rather than by an organization, government, or educational institution.


Appendix A.  More About the Internet.  This appendix contains, for example, information on how to get on the Internet, i.e. how to purchase an Internet account.


Appendix B.  More Books.  This appendix lists introductory Internet books, law-related books, and book publishers.  Many of the publishers listing in this appendix maintain a Gopher site.


Appendix C.  More About Midnight Networks.  This appendix describes Midnight Network Inc (, the company that provides administrative support for "The Legal List" in the form of an anonymous FTP server (and its disk space).

0.2.                Typographical Conventions and URLs.


Optional items are listed in brackets. 


Items that should be interpreted are listed in italics.  For example, If I were instructed to type your name, I would type Erik J. Heels. 


Uniform Resource Locators (URLs) are listed for each Internet resource.  I have followed the draft RFC standard dated 03/94, which is available via anonymous FTP from as /ftp/internet-drafts/draft-ietf-uri-url-03.txt.  The URL for the URL draft standard is




In general, the URL will be in the format of connection-method://machine/path.  In the above example, the connection-method is FTP, the machine is, and the path is /ftp/internet-drafts/draft-ietf-uri-url-03.txt.


0.3.                Purpose and History.


The purpose of "The Legal List" is to provide a consolidated list of all of the law-related resources available on the Internet and elsewhere.  I have been "on the Internet" since 1984.  I initially learned about the Internet by looking over the shoulders of my friends and co-workers (I believe that this is the way most people learn how to navigate the Internet), and then I began exploring the Internet for myself.  I spent a great deal of 1992 exploring the Internet in search of law-related resources, and I was frustrated that a comprehensive list of such resources did not exist, so I created my own list.  As I discussed what I had been doing with others, they began to request copies of my list.  In August, 1992, I released the first version.  I called this version "beta.4," because it was (and is) a work in progress.  What started as a relatively short list for my own use has grown into the relatively large book you are now reading.


I am committed to providing high-quality information, and as such, I have tried to verify all of the information in "The Legal List."  If I have not been able to verify a resource, I have indicated so.  I also include resources that are no longer available, so that you need not waste your time responding to an announcement of a so-called "new" resource that has, in fact, been extinct for some time. 


But providing high-quality information costs money.  "The Legal List" receives no financial support from any organization.  (Administrative support in the form of a Gopher server (and its disk space) is provided by the University of Maine School of Law.  Administrative support in the form of an anonymous FTP server (and its disk space) is provided by Midnight Networks, Inc.)  I have invested my own time and money into "The Legal List."  As the copyright notice indicates, "The Legal List" is free on the Internet, but it costs if you print it.  I believe that this arrangement is consistent with the spirit of providing free information on the Internet, while at the same time allowing me to partially recover the costs of producing "The Legal List."  In response to those who say that this arrangement makes those without Internet access subsidize those with such access, I can only say that 1) this arrangement encourages people to get on the Internet to get the free version, and 2) I cannot think of a better solution.


I believe that "The Legal List" is worth the price.  It is comprehensive, frequently-updated, and "subscribable."  Users of "The Legal List" include individuals from courts (including the United States Supreme Court and the United States Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit), approximately 70 universities (including 49 of the top 50 US law schools), and 15 countries.  But do not take my word for it, listen to what others have said (names have been used with permission):

0.4.                For New Internet Users - A Brief Primer on the Internet.


Earlier versions of "The Legal List" stated that "a certain level of familiarity with the Internet is assumed by the author of The Legal List."  I no longer make this assumption, as I have discovered that many readers of "The Legal List" are unfamiliar with the Internet in general.  As such, I have added this "brief primer."  For additional introductory information, see the appendices.


A Brief Primer on the Internet.  The Internet is THE international network of computer networks.  Each computer on the Internet speaks the same language, the TCP/IP protocols.  (In addition, many commercial online services such as CompuServe and GEnie are connected to the Internet via gateways.  In essence, this means that the users of these services can use limited Internet resources, most notably electronic mail.  But this is rapidly changing as these value-added networks make other Internet protocols available, such as FTP and Telnet.)


The computers on the Internet are connected, essentially, by various types of telephone lines.  But what matters to the Internet-user is not how these computers are connected or how an electronic mail (e-mail) message gets from Maine to Finland, but simply that the Internet WORKS.  When people write a letter and send it from Maine to Finland via the United States Postal Services (USPS), they know that the "to" and "from" addresses must be written in a certain place, that mail may be returned if there is a problem, and that mail may be disposed of after sitting idly on the shelf of the post office (if, for example, both addresses are illegible).  Internet e-mail works in much the same way.  Some of the TCP/IP protocols deal with how to send, return, and dispose of e-mail.


The advantages of Internet e-mail over USPS mail and telephone calls are numerous.  Unlike with USPS mail, you do not have to find a stamp and drive to the nearest mailbox to send Internet e-mail.  And unlike the telephone, Internet e-mail is never busy.  One winter, I planned a ski trip in Maine entirely by e-mail.  I was able to make sure that each person got the same information, I could keep track of RSVPs, and I did not have to worry about making phone calls.


Not Just for Scientists Anymore.  Formerly used exclusively by government, military, and research users, the Internet is now being used by people in all lines of work.  As more people get on the Internet, fewer people will be able to ignore the Internet.  Lawyers will need to get on the
Internet to communicate with their clients and with each other.  1993 may go down in history as "the year of the Internet."  Consider that in 1993 there were more references to the Internet in the New York Times than there were in all previous years combined! 


Summary.  When I was choosing a name for "The Legal List, Law-Related Resources on the Internet and Elsewhere," I initially had chosen "beyond" instead of "elsewhere."  However, I decided to go with "elsewhere" because in terms of electronic resources, NOTHING is beyond the Internet.  As big as commercial online services (such as CompuServe and GEnie) may get, they will always be a subset of the Internet.  The "elsewhere" sections deal primarily with resources that are not on the Internet, but that may be someday.  And as the Internet expands, there will be more legal issues (intellectual property, privacy, and First Amendment issues to name a few) to tackle.  Was 1993 the year of the Internet?  I am not sure, but I do know that the Internet is here to stay, and for lawyers and others who are concerned about the future of the Internet, now is the time to get on.


0.4.1.             FTPMail (FTP via E-mail).


Many resources are available via anonymous FTP.  If you do not have access to FTP, but you do have access to e-mail, send a message to with "help" in the body of the body of the message for information on the FTPMAIL (FTP by e-mail) service.


URL: (with "help" in the body of the message) (FTPMail)          FTPMail Example.


For example, to get "The Legal List" via e-mail from the FTPMail service, send the following message to




get /pub/LegalList/README

0.4.2.             Gopher Overview.


Gopher is an Internet client/server protocol, developed in April 1991 by the University of Minnesota, for making a world wide information service.  Gopher provides a delivery vehicle for local information and facilitates access to other Gopher and information servers throughout the world.  Gopher can also search and retrieve info via WAIS and FTP.  Various client versions of Gopher software are available via anonymous FTP:




Using a local client is faster, but there are also a number of public Telnet login sites available:

Gopher is accessible via e-mail with GopherMail.  To use GopherMail,

send a message to one of the GopherMail servers with "help" as the

subject of the message (try to use a site near you):

search of most of the Gopher-server menu titles in the world.  To try VERONICA, select it from the "Other Gophers" menu on the University of Minnesota's Gopher server.


0.4.3.             WWW Overview.


WWW stands for the World Wide Web.  WWW, started by CERN (the European Laboratory for Particle Physics), is a distributed hypermedia system.  To access the Web, you run a browser program that can read and retrieve documents.  The browsers can access information via/from FTP, Telnet, Usenet, Gopher, WAIS, and others.


The following are some of the Browsers accessible by Telnet (try to use sites near you):


URL:  telnet:// (US)


URL:  telnet:// (US)


URL:  telnet:// (Switzerland)


URL:  telnet:// (Israel)


URL:  telnet://sun.uakom.cs (Slovakia)


URL:  telnet:// (Finland)


0.4.4.             WAIS Overview.


WAIS, the Wide Area Information Servers, is a networked full text information retrieval system developed by Thinking Machines, Apple Computer, and Dow Jones.  WAIS currently uses TCP/IP to connect client applications to information servers.  Client applications are able to retrieve text or multimedia documents stored on the servers.  Client applications request documents using keywords.  Servers search a full text index for the documents and return a list of documents containing the keyword.  The client may then request the server to send a copy of any of the documents found.  The WAIS software distribution is available via anonymous FTP:


URL: (WAIS software)


URL: (current WAIS sources/databases)


URL: (documentation, users guides, etc.)


If you are in Europe try the following first:


URL: (WAIS files)


The easiest way to get started (if you do not have access to a  WAIS client) is to try the WAIS at Thinking Machines:


URL:  telnet://          WAISmail (WAIS via E-mail).


If you do not have access to WAIS but you do have access to e-mail, you might want to try WAISmail, a WAIS via e-mail program.  For more information on WAISmail, send a message to WAISmail@Think.COM with "help" as the subject of the message.


URL:  mailto::WAISmail@Think.COM (with "help" as the subject of the message)


With WAISmail, you can search WAIS sources and retrieve documents identified by your searches.  Here is how the "search" and "retrieve" commands work:


search [<source-name>|"<source-name> <source-name> ..."] {keywords...}


Where <source-name> is a source name as found in the directory of servers (with or without the .src ending).  If you use more than one source name and enclose them in quotes (as above), WAISmail will search both of the sources.  If you try to search a nonexistent source, WAISmail will e-mail a list of sources to you.  The following are some law-related WAIS sources that you may want to try:

































retrieve <DOCID>


Where <DOCID> is as returned by your search.


0.4.5.             BBS Overview.


There are approximately 50,000 BBSs nationwide, many of which are law-related.  I have included only the essential information about these BBSs here, namely the phone number to call and a contact for more information.  Most of the BBSs run 24 hours per day, many charge a fee, many are accessible at various baud rates.  Your best bet is to read the introductory information carefully for each BBS.

"The Legal List" is one of many resources officially documented by the InterNIC Directory and Database Services maintained by the NSF Network Systems Center (NNSC) under a contract with AT&T.  The "Internet Resource Guide" (IRG) (formerly compiled and maintained by BBN, Inc., for the NNSC) has been moved to the "Directory of Directories" provided by the InterNIC Directory and Database Services.  In previous versions of "The Legal List," I wrote "[t]he [IRG] is invaluable, and everyone with a serious interest in the Internet should maintain a copy.  The NNSC's stated goal is 'to expose users to those facilities that will help them do their work better.'  (Internet Resource Guide, Introduction, dated 16 Apr 90.)  I wholeheartedly agree with this goal."  Although the IRG in its 1990-form is being discontinued, the entries have been incorporated into the NNSC's new "Directory of Directories."  The "Directory of Directories" should prove to be an invaluable resource.

Chapter 1.  Corporations and Organizations.


This chapter describes law-related resources made available by for-profit, nonprofit, and not-for-profit corporations and organizations.  An organization in this chapter would most likely have a domain name ending in ".com" (commercial) or ".org" (organization).  Law firms are listed separately--sorted by the state (or country) of their main office.


One of the best ways to find the e-mail address for a particular individual is to call that individual.  If you choose to contact the individuals listed below via e-mail, please keep your e-mail message short and to-the-point.


1.0.                Corporations and Organizations.


1.1.00.           Law Firms - Introduction.


It is important to understand that communication with a lawyer or law firm by e-mail, including use of information resources provided by a law firm via a WWW server or other Internet resource, DOES NOT without an explicit mutual agreement create an attorney-client relationship.  A lawyer-client relationship can be created by e-mail only by a direct and explicit agreement, confirmed by the lawyer or law firm and the client.  No implicit agreement can be asserted.  Accordingly, great care should be taken not to communicate information deemed confidential absent such explicit confirmation.  Contact your local bar association if you are in doubt about the law in your jurisdiction.


The law firms listed here are under no obligation to keep any information you send them confidential until AFTER they agree to form a lawyer-client relationship with you.  You should use e-mail or any information services lawyers or firms provide via the Internet only as a means of learning more about a lawyer or firm.  If a lawyer or firm does agree to represent you, you should then discuss how best to exchange confidential information.


The firms listed below are among the few with connections to the Internet.  Nearly all of them subscribe to "The Legal List."  All of the firms below are accessible via e-mail, some have gone the extra step of establishing their own domain name, and some have gone even further, providing FTP, WWW, or other access means.  Note that the information below, except where it was already available on the Internet, was provided by the individual law firms.

We are a small firm that represents computer/technology clients.  We represent start-ups and NYSE-listed companies with equal zeal and enthusiasm (we actually enjoy being lawyers).  Our clients include the proverbial tinkerers in a one bedroom apartment who are writing code as well as industry leaders in interactive CD-ROM (and everything in between).  We provide counseling from formation through financing and growth.  Our backgrounds are with large law firms and large software programmers/distributors.  We also protect intellectual property rights by bringing infringement lawsuits (and sometimes defending our clients in them).


We believe attorneys are in a service industry and we provide SERVICE!  Our mission is to provide large law firm quality at reasonable prices.  If you need a lawyer experienced in the computer, trademark, copyright, licensing, or technology field, give us a call.  If you want to ask questions, share experiences or get references (or advice) from our other clients, call, fax or e-mail.  Since we are lawyers, we love to talk and welcome your call!

We emphasize teamwork in handling matters that cut across multiple legal specialties.  Our lawyers are backed by more than 130 legal assistants, computer specialists, economists, legislative specialists, librarians, and others.  We control costs by lean staffing, appropriate non-lawyer support, and innovative use of technology.  In 1983, WC&P decided to give every lawyer a PC.  Today, all lawyers and staff are on our LAN.  Many clients are linked to our e-mail system.  We have developed our own software, including hypertext legal references and powerful optical imaging/text retrieval systems for litigation support.  These tools make our practice more efficient and effective.

1) Quality Legal Advice.  We must always deliver the highest quality legal services.  We must continue our professional development throughout our careers and become experts in our respective fields.

2) Responsiveness.  We must be responsive to our client's needs on a timely and cost-efficient basis.  We emphasize the importance of optimal turn-around time on all projects.

3) Knowledge.  We must understand the fundamentals of each client's business and the individual philosophies and strategies of our clients so that our legal representation will be well directed.

4) Communication.  To be effective in the legal representation of our clients, we must be good communicators.  Our lawyers understand the importance of presenting practical and "bottom line" conclusions.

5) Concern for Clients.  A lawyer cannot be effective unless he or she first cares about the client.  A client will not care about us until we have first genuinely cared about the client.

6) Team Spirit.  Our law firm has developed and maintains an internal culture that promotes a team effort.

7) Community Spirit.  Our lawyers are good citizens and must remain involved in our local communities.  We expect our lawyers to contribute through civic and charitable activities that meet a wide range of needs.

The consortium grants permission to download, reproduce, or re-post any of the Supreme Court opinion files PROVIDED NO CHANGES OR EDITING ARE MADE TO THE SUBJECT MATERIAL.  The consortium would greatly appreciate it if source credit were given to CWRU, EDUCOM, and the National Public Telecomputing Network if these files are used.

The registration and BBS phone numbers have been listed by state.  "DC" stands for District Court, "BC" stands for Bankruptcy Court.  Circuit court phone numbers have been listed for each state in the circuit (i.e. the 1st Circuit BBS phone number has been listed in the Maine section, not because the BBS is in Maine, but because Maine is in the 1st Circuit.

2.3.06            US House of Representatives.


In June 1993, the House of Representatives' Committee on House Administration announced a pilot program called the Constituent Electronic Mail System.  E-mail addresses are available for individual Representatives and for House committees.  So far, however, only a few Representatives have signed up for e-mail.


The organizers of the pilot program kindly request that constituents send a letter or postcard (that includes the sender's name, address, and Internet e-mail address) by US Mail to their Representative so that the Representatives will be able to verify the incoming e-mail is from an actual constituent.  The organizers also note that Representatives may reply to e-mail messages via USPS mail.


For more information, contact:
