This unit introduces students to the regulatory challenges presented by the internet to more traditional areas of law such as contract, intellectual property and criminal law. In analysing these challenges, it draws on developments in foreign jurisdictions including the United States and Europe, and developments in international law. Topics include; history of the Internet, what it is and its underlying technology; the various services available on the Internet; how the Internet differs from other forms of communication and publication; the competing interests implicated in issues of internet regulation; and how and why the Internet presents challenges to existing legal paradigms.
