Exam Instructions

1.  The exam is an open book exam without restrictions.  This means you can bring any written materials (printed or handwritten in hardcopy rather than material you have access to that is stored on a laptop or available online) you wish to the exam whether prepared by you, me or anyone else.  This can include commercially prepared materials.

2.  You MUST bring your casebook to the exam because I may refer to a case or statute by reference to the page where it appears in the casebook.  I have done this on some past exams.

3.  The statutes (and related policies in the case of the UDRP) that you are responsible for on the exam include:

(1) The Anticybersquatting Consumer Protection Act (ACPA) including both its substantive provisions (pages 285-287) and its provision for in rem jurisdiction (pages 170-71)

(2) The Uniform Dispute Resolution Policy of ICANN (UDRP) (pages 287 and 304-6)

(3) Section 1201 of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) (pages 246-48)

(4) Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act (pages 492-93)

(5) Section 512 of the Digital Millenium Copyright Act (pages 520-24)

These are the same provisions that are linked in the Major Statutory Provisions document.

4.  The major constitutional areas that we examined included the First Amendment, the Dormant Commerce Clause, and Personal Jurisdiction.

5. You are responsible for all of the assigned readings on both Parts One and Two of the Course Syllabus as reflected in the Course Review (Parts One and Two).
