Eric Goldman & Rebecca Tushnet, Self-Publishing a Casebook Benefited Our Readers -- And Us, 11 Wash. J.L. Tech. & Arts 25 (2015).
Abstract: Self-publishing our electronic casebook, Advertising and Marketing Law: Cases & Materials, wasn’t some grand ambition to disrupt legal publishing. Our goal was more modest: we wanted to make available materials for a course we strongly believe should be widely taught in law school. Electronic self-publishing advanced that goal in two key ways. First, it allowed us to keep the price of the materials low. Second, we bypassed gatekeepers who may have degraded the casebook’s content and slowed the growth of an advertising law professors’ community.
