Book Description

11 Aug 1997 Information Infrastructure Project at Harvard University
For years, the world saw the Internet as a creature of theU.S. Department of Defense. Now some claim that the Internet is aself-governing organism controlled by no one and needing nooversight. Although the National Science Foundation and othergovernment agencies continue to support and oversee criticaladministrative and coordinating functions, the Internet is remarkablydecentralized and uninstitutionalized. As it grows in scope,bandwidth, and functionality, the Internet will require greatercoordination, but it is not yet clear what kind of coordinatingmechanisms will evolve.The essays in this volume clarify these issues and suggest possiblemodels for governing the Internet. The topics addressed range fromsettlements and statistics collection to the sprawling problem ofdomain names, which affects the commercial interests of millions ofcompanies around the world. One recurrent theme is the inseparabilityof technical and policy issues in any discussion involving theInternet.Contributors:Guy Almes, Ashley Andeen, Joseph P. Bailey, Steven M.

4.0 out of 5 stars Briliant Ideas. 29 Oct 2000
By Jorge E. Galvis Tovar - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A very good analisys, it needs to be updated with recent events and cases, but the theoretical ideas remain valid. It is not a law book, it is more a legal policy one. As a non US lawyer I recomend it as material for academic discussion.
