Internet Law: Everything You Need to Know
By Kaan Back
Generally, when there is some sort of dispute between businesses or people the first form of defense is the law. A law is defined as a rule of conduct or action prescribed or formally recognized as binding or enforced by a controlling authority. If the law is too broad resulting in the dispute still not being settled, the case is usually brought to a court so it can be properly litigated. Over the past twenty years, technology has grown at a rapid pace and it has redefined where a majority of the work is accomplished nowadays. As a result of this technological shift, there had to be new laws added to help regulate what can and cannot be done on the internet. These new regulations are part of internet law which is the main form of monitoring acceptable behavior online.
