The Concept of Self-Regulation and the Internet

This book addresses self-regulation of content on the Internet. Although Internet selfregulation involves many issues, such as e-commerce, technical protocols and domain names management, on-line content controls have initiated most public concern and debate. Throughout this book, emphasis is placed on the operational aspects and design of self-regulation. In this chapter we examine how self-regulatory entities relate to other quasi-legal and state institutions, how it is decided what powers the self-regulatory institutions wield, and how the use of selfregulation can contribute to the more effective and more efficient realisation of both economic and societal goals.
