- 10 Laws the Net Needs
(Please read and Vote)
The folks at CNET (http://www.cnet.com/) have adopted a "if you can't
beat 'em, join 'em" attitude when it comes to Internet legislation
(and Internet laws). Accordingly, CNET has drafted a list of ten
Internet laws that they would like to see introduced,
proposals dealing with real issues like the proliferation of
spam, the invasion of online privacy, and yes, the too-easy
access to pornography. Some of our ideas match bills Congress is
already considering; others address problems that Washington
hasn't thought of yet.
To tell the truth, I'm not quite certain that CNET intends or even
desires to see all of their laws implemented. In fact, I'm willing to
bet that a lot of netizens probably don't agree with all of CNET's
proposals. My guess is that CNET just wants us to think about and
discuss the legal issues that the Internet will face in the immediate
Each page in this series of Web pages introduces a particular Internet
issue and provides some background information that attempts to
support CNET's position on this issue. ... deleted ... at the bottom
of every one of these statements is a place where you can vote on whether
you agree or disagree with CNET's position.
