East Palo Alto, Calif. (Vocus) July 12, 2010 —
The international law firm Greenberg Traurig LLP announced today that shareholder Ian Ballon’s four-volume legal treatise, E-Commerce and Internet Law: Treatise with Forms 2d Edition (West 2009 & Annual Supp.) is now available on Westlaw. The authority on Internet law, the book was first published in December 2000 and has been relied upon by lawyers and judges for the past decade, but has never previously been available on Westlaw. More information on the treatise may be found at http://www.IanBallon.net.
Ballon, a litigator whose practice focuses on intellectual property and Internet law, divides his time between the firm’s Silicon Valley and Los Angeles offices. He represents technology, media, and entertainment companies in complex copyright, Lanham Act, trade secret, and Internet-related litigation, including precedent-setting cases in the area of Internet law. Ballon has been named one of the Top 100 lawyers in California and Top 75 intellectual property litigators in California by the San Francisco Daily Journal and the Los Angeles Daily Journal. He is listed in The Best Lawyers in America® in the areas of intellectual property and information technology and has been recognized by Chambers and Partners in its Chambers USA guide in the areas of copyright litigation and privacy and data security. More information on Ballon may be found at http://www.gtlaw.com/People/IanCBallon.
Westlaw is a leading online legal research service. Ballon’s treatise will be available in Westlaw’s ECOMMINTLAW database and fully searchable by Westlaw subscribers. The treatise will now also link to referenced cases and to other materials available on Westlaw. More information on Westlaw may be found at http://www.westlaw.com.
E-Commerce and Internet Law: Treatise with Forms is a unique legal treatise that—unlike any other legal treatise—adopts the structure of online legal research. Instead of relying on an old-fashioned topic index at the back of the four-volume set, the treatise includes indices at the front that mirror the research structure of the Web, with extensive cross-references and mini “home pages” at the beginning of each chapter, which allow users to link to topics ranging from the more general to the more specific and to related areas of law. The treatise contains nearly 10,000 detailed footnotes and references to hundreds of unpublished court decisions, complaints, and other resources. Now that the treatise is available on Westlaw, users can link to primary source materials or other sections of the treatise in seconds.
“I am pleased that West has selected E-Commerce and Internet Law for inclusion in the well-respected Westlaw legal research service,” said Ballon. “The treatise provides thorough analysis of important legal developments, splits of authority, and trends in the law, as well as practical advice for helping clients in areas where the law may be unclear or appear to impose contradictory obligations.”
