This answer was rated:

Part 1: select a web site and analyze whether the web site creator would be subject to jurisdiction.Part 2: Why is personal jurisdiction an isue for those who post websites? What are some reasons that a website owner might be concerned with whether a court is able to obtain 'personal jurisdiction' over them? What is normally required for a court to have personal jurisdiction? When is a court required to use long-arm jurisdiction? Why is long arm jurisdiction an issue for those who create or post web pages?I have to make these answers be 3-5 paragraphs in length total. So far I have tried looking at an article posted by Mr. Wolf intitled "Internet Jurisdiction" found at http://library.findlaw.com/1999/Jan/1/241482.html. Could you provide another site for reference to these questions? This is due Tuesday, Jan 6th.
