I'm a final year honours student researching towards a dissertation on 
the impact of the Disability Discrimination Act on web accessibility in 
the UK ('Web Accessibility and the DDA'). Although there is no case law 
in the UK on this (hence the dissertation), I was wondering whether 
anyone could point me in the direction of relative case law and/or 
articles on the subject from other countries. As a result of 
subscribing to this list I have already come across the SOCOG case and 
found both the case and the subsequent postings very useful. I am also 
aware of the AOL case however feel this will be of only limited use as 
I understand that it was settled out of court.

On a slightly different, but still relevant note, I have also come 
across a case involving the American version of the 'Who Wants to be a 
Millionaire?' quizshow but have had little luck in finding a report or 
articles - no due to the fact that all I know is the subject. Again if 
anyone has more details on this then they would be greatly appreciated.
