Daniel has also worked on an Internet-related matter involving the legal effects of “browsewrap” agreements, violations of Web page terms of use, the circumvention of technological barriers to access Web pages, violations of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, copyright issues related to cache copying of Web pages, the use of “spiders” to collect data from Web pages, the legality of “deep-linking” to web pages, and the legality of search engine aggregation and display of copyrighted Web pages.

Daniel has recently co-authored a scholarly article with Warrington S. Parker III entitled, "The Differing Approaches to Preemption Under the Uniform Trade Secrets Act" that was published in Volume 49, Issue 2 of the Tort Trial & Insurance Practice Law Journal. Daniel is also a contributing author to the NorCal IP Blog, which covers notable new intellectual property case filings and verdicts in the Northern District of California.
