Abstract

How can we regulate the Internet? This seemingly innocent question has been the subject of countless books and articles for just over the past twenty years. Part of the reason why it continues to be a vibrant and relevant topic is the difference of opinions on what is going on. On the one hand we have those who believe that the Internet is a free and open space that requires no regulation, and/or is incapable of being regulated. On the other hand we have those who think that regulation is not only desirable, but that the Internet as it exists now is completely regulated because of the prevalence of state surveillance, and that all semblance of freedom is a mere illusion.
