Encourage the young to create our new internet laws

Encourage the young to create our new internet laws

The Internet and the laws that are meant to protect us are only in their infancy. At present, the law ‎plays catch up, particularly because of lack of vision and the lack of understanding of trends. In ‎reality, almost everything we do is moving online. ‎

What we currently have is loads of laws that were written for the offline world and that need to be ‎revised. We also have a police force that is offline based and which is not equipped to enforce laws ‎on the internet. ‎

The best way to understand what laws are needed in this area is by going through the day to day ‎problems that individuals are facing on the internet. We then need to look at the causes or the ‎roots to these problems and discover if and how and what laws we can create to help fix them. ‎

    In the discussion about social media platforms as “publishers” of posts by users, it is worth remembering that this is not new law. See for example this case about Google reviews. https://www.smh.com.au/national/google-has-early-win-in-fighting-contempt-charge-over-defamatory-reviews-20190712-p526kc.html
