I'm forwarding a query about the history of Internet law and regulation. Most of what I'm familiar with is about standards, ICANN and IANA, and global governance issues; I sent him some references for Mueller and DeNardis. I don't know anything about the Internet in Germany. Suggestions?

You can respond directly to Peukert, or to this list and I will collect and forward.

> Dear Professor Abbate,
> I am teaching IP law at Goethe University in Frankfurt am Main/Germany, and I read with great interest your book “Inventing the Internet”. I am currently undertaking a search with regard to the legal history of the internet, that is to say the regulations that governed the evolution of the internet in the U.S. and other countries, in particular Germany. Aside of your book, I only came across few articles that partly address some issues, in particular the history of ICANN (Weinberg, 2000) and the privatization of the internet backbone network (Kesan and Shah, 2001). I did not find, however, an in-depth legal-historical study of one (let alone all) major steps in the evolution of the internet until the end of the 1990ies.
