Although as early as 1997 law professor James Boyle, > in > his "Foucault in Cyberspace," spoke of the state's efforts to "build > the > regime into the architecture of transactions ....both technically and > economically rather than policing transactions after the fact," the > first generation of ISP regulation contained strong limitations on > liability. Those limits are now under attack, and there is a new push > for ISP "responsibility" for the many problems that can occur via the > internet, including illegal content, malware, copyright violations via > P2P file sharing, etc. This seminar will explore legal and economic > analysis of intermediary responsibility and ways of assessing the > impact > of this kind of regulation on Internet freedom and innovation. > > Others involved in similar areas are invited to also discuss their > work > and bring their ideas, either on the substance and politics of the > issue, or on research methodologies and theoretical approaches. > > Best regards, > > Ralf Bendrath ______________________________________________________ * Verspreid via nettime-nl.
