The Internet is often portrayed as unregulated and anarchic, rife with pornography and salacious lies. Laws regulating such content, typically predate the arrival of the World Wide Web. Internet technology, however, presents a number of challenges to what were previously settled legal issues such as whether an Internet service provider (ISP) should be held liable for defamatory material, as would a publisher or distributor of a newspaper. This module will consider such problems raised by the technology, and explore how different jurisdictions - particularly the UK, the EU and the US - have responded to this challenge. Policy issues surrounding legal reform will form an integral part of the module.
