Global Perspectives on Internet Regulation

  • Marion G. Ben-Jacob,


The Internet is a powerful tool that is used for professional and personal reasons. In order to maximize its benefits for all people, ethical behavior needs to demonstrated by all users. For the Internet to be of supreme aid to people worldwide, regulations from different countries need to be synchronized, at least to some degree. This paper examines computers, the Internet, and the ways it is incorporated into different fields. It discusses the roles of the Internet Society and the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), and where things stand politically today with their responsibilities. It delves into detail with regard to the Internet regulation of several countries and then provides a summary table for the regulation of many other countries worldwide.
