4.2 Internet law / Cyberlaw

Legal approach to shape a legal framework for the Internet by laws – including international law – addressing the legal issues that arise from the Internet and the information and communication technology (ICT).
 

Note:

The other legal approach is the real-law approach, whereby the Internet and the information and communication technology (ICT) are essentially treated no differently from previous technologies. Consequently, any existing legal rules can also be applied to the Internet.
