Abstract

In a particularly insightful article published in 1998, Bernadette Jew noted that: 'In considering the legal issues relating to jurisdiction and their application to the internet, we are forced to think beyond the question of whether we " should' regulate the internet and to consider whether we actually "can" regulate the internet'. Today, the question of whether we should regulate the internet has already been answered- we both should and must do so. Regulating the internet is necessary to create trust in the internet; trust that benefits everyone online. But where are we at with the question of whether we actually can regulate the internet? the answer is of course that progress has been made during the 17 years since Jew's article was published. However, that progress has been slow and we are still far from arriving at satisfactory solutions.
