Interesting Law Review Article on Internet Personal Jurisdiction

The summer issue of the DePaul Law Review has published You Can't Always Use the Zippo Code: The Fallacy of a Uniform Theory of Internet Personal Jurisdiction, a detailed and informative article regarding the evolving law of personal jurisdiction in internet cases.  The author, Professor Dennis T. Yokoyama, urges courts to use traditional personal jurisdiction principles, like minimum contacts with a forum state, in determining whether personal jurisdiction exists.  Professor Yokoyama also cautions that there may be a misuse of the "Zippo test" in these types of cases.  The citation for the article is 54 DePaul L. Rev. 1147 (2005).
