Over the last decade, the Internet has transformed how information can be made available-it is now used to transfer information about things as varied as financial transactions and celebrity gossip and to link and coordinate activities between otherwise isolated people, from protest groups to lonely hearts. This unprecedented ease of access to a wealth of information and contacts presents a challenge to national governments who wish to control and restrain some of this activity.
In recent years, Internet control has become one of the major indicators to assess the balance between freedom and security in democracies. This book explores and compares how, why, and to what extent, national governments decide to control the Internet and how this impacts on crucial socio-economic activities and fundamental civil rights. The author provides detailed studies on the US, Germany, Italy and further case studies on Brazil, Canada, India, the Netherlands, South Africa and Switzerland, to address topics such cyber terrorism, the protection of information infrastructure, and the impact on individual privacy and freedom of speech.
This is the first cross-country, comparative study on the issue of Internet control. It will be of interest to international relations scholars and students, and particularly those with an interest in the Internet.

Internet Governance

RRP $257.99

This book will provide critical insights into Internet governance through an in-depth examination of human rights law.

The term Internet governance is used to describe the interlinked processes that steer the growth and development of the Internet. The Internet is unique as a user-generated, international, decentralised technology that has evolved without strong State control and, as such, poses distinct regulatory challenges.

Given the pervasive nature of the Internet, its use increasingly brings implications for the protection of human rights. Equality of access, privacy and freedom of expression all need to be supported within a governance structure that is often dominated by State and commercial interests. Internet Governance: A Human Rights Perspective examines the regulatory framework and the role of the State, self-regulatory bodies and co-regulatory initiatives from the perspective of the protection of fundamental freedoms. The book will be in three main parts: the first will examine the international human rights framework with a focus on Internet development; the second will take specific rights in turn and present an in-depth analysis of key policy issues; and the third will bring these together to present a critical account of the potential for human rights debates to shape the future of the Internet.

This book will be of great interest to students and academics with an interest in IT law, Internet regulation and human rights law.

Enhancing The Internet With The Convergence System

RRP $491.99

Convergence proposes the enhancement of the Internet with a novel, content-centric, publish-subscribe service model based on the versatile digital item (VDI): a common container for all kinds of digital content, including digital representations of real-world resources. VDIs will serve the needs of the future Internet, providing a homogeneous method for handling structured information, incorporating security and privacy mechanisms. CONVERGENCE subsumes the following areas of research:

· definition of the VDI as a new fundamental unit of distribution and transaction;

· content-centric networking functionality to complement or replace IP-address-based routing;

· security and privacy protection mechanisms;

· open-source middleware, including a community dictionary service to enable rich semantic searches;

· applications, tested under real-life conditions.

This book shows how CONVERGENCE allows publishing, searching and subscribing to any content. Creators can publish their content by wrapping it and its descriptions into a VDI, setting rights for other users to access this content, monitor its use, and communicate with people using it; they may even update or revoke content previously published. Access to content is more efficient, as search engines exploit VDI metadata for indexing, and the network uses the content name to ensure users always access the copy closest to them. Every node in the network is a content cache; handover is easy; multicast is natural; peer-to-peer is built-in; time/space-decoupling is possible. Application developers can exploit CONVERGENCE's middleware and network without having to resort to proprietary/ad hoc solutions for common/supporting functionality. Operators can use the network more efficiently, better controlling information transfer and related revenues flows. Network design, operation and management are simplified by integrating diverse functions and avoiding patches and stopgap solutions.

Whether as a text for graduate students working on the future of the Internet, or a resource for practitioners providing e-commerce or multimedia services, or scientists defining new technologies, CONVERGENCE will make a valuable contribution to the future shape of the Internet.
