Hi. Well there's someone who has posted here named Ray Recchia who is a lawyer, I think. He might have some ideas if he's still on the list.
J.M. Balkin wrote a book called _Cultural Software_
not too many years ago (1998) and his blurb under his
dust jacket pic says: "J.M. Balkin is Knight Professor
of Constitutional Law and the First Amendment, as well
as director of the Information Society Project at Yale
That's cool, I always liked the unique blend of
electronica style hiphop that Information Society put
out in the 80's (just kidding ;-)).
Yes Balkin talks about memes in _Cultural Software_.
Can't remember how much he addresses legal stuff. He
kinda lost me somewhere towards the middle of the book
IIRC. It's been a while. Maybe he's got contact info
on Yale's website. According to his book's preface
some parts of a couple chapters were previously
published in a couple *law review* periodicals.
*- hope this dusk jacket quoting comes under the
banner of fair use ;-)
