Abstract:     
Chris Anderson's book, The Long Tail: Why the Future of Business Is Selling Less of More, has attracted enormous attention since its publication in July 2006. His insight is that technology and the Internet have transformed the focus of America's culture and economy. Whereas pre-Internet firms turned out a small number of "hits" or blockbuster products (the "head" of the demand curve), today's Internet-era firms offer a broader range of niche products (the "tail"). This Essay argues that the Long Tail theory can help both explain the current state of legal scholarship and chart its future.
