Abstract:

This paper is a review of the Internet and its current international legal situation. The Internet is considered the ultimate bastion of freedom throughout the world. The ability to participate in social media and write/say anything one feels is almost exclusive to the Internet. The ability to research unlimited amounts of information exists at the touch of the keyboard. As technology advances so does the Internet's worth and importance to us in everyday life. More and more there is the need for controls of the Internet. This paper reviews the lawful aspects of the Internet and the dynamics through time from a historical perspective, and it discusses the pros and cons of an internationally regulated Internet through the challenges.
