"Dow Jones & Company Inc v Gutnick  HCA 56: Negotiating American legal hegemony in the transnational world of cyberspace"
Fitzgerald, Brian F. (2003) "Dow Jones & Company Inc v Gutnick  HCA 56: Negotiating American legal hegemony in the transnational world of cyberspace". Melbourne University Law Review, 27, p. 590.
[This case note provides an overview of the High Court’s landmark decision in Gutnick, concerning defamation on, and jurisdiction over, the Internet. As well as providing a detailed analysis of the judgments and their impact on defamation law and cyberlaw, the case note considers the dominant role of the First Amendment to the United States Constitution in cyberspace. It calls for a negotiation of this dominance by American legal principle in cyberspace and argues for conceptualising a constitutionalism for transnational society implemented by national courts. While seeing the Gutnick decision as inevitable, the case note highlights the limitations enunciated by the High Court and explains how the decision will provide the platform for legal regulation that will allow the distributed nature of the Internet to prosper.]

Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
