JURISDICTION AND THE INTERNET


  Download     Preview


Description:
This book examines how regulatory competence is allocated over online activity: which State has the right to regulate which site or online event? Who can apply their defamation or contract law, their obscenity standards, gambling or banking regulation, pharmaceutical licensing requirements or hate speech prohibitions to a site – and enforce these laws? Traditionally transnational activity has been ‘shared out’ between States with the aid of location-centric rules and these can be adjusted to suit the Internet. But can these rules be stretched indefinitely and what are the costs of squeezing global online activity into nation-state law? This book offers some uncomfortable insights into one of the most important debates on Internet governance, and will be of interest to students, academics, policy makers, legal practitioners and businesses who work in the field of e-commerce or Internet regulation. #pdf
