Internet and Civil Law

This week I had to give a lecture on Internet basics at the symposium "Internet and Civil Law" at the German "Richterakademie" (which is a conference center esp. for judges) in Trier. I lived in Trier when doing my PhD before I went to the University of Jena. It's interesting to get back to a town where you have lived for a long time. Everything seems to be rather familiar....but it isn't anymore. Things are changing.
So does my internet (basics) lecture. Although this symposium takes place every other year, almost 50% of my lecture differs from the lecture given the last time. The internet (and the Web) is rapidly changing....
