The study of Internet Law, also known as Cyberlaw, sits at the intersection of law, policy, internet and society. It is, and remains, a comparatively young field, albeit one which has rapidly matured. In the late 1990s, Internet law was accused of being the Law of the Horse — the sale of horses, regulation of animal welfare, accidents occuring to riders, their use as criminal getaway vehicles, and more, all concerned the law, but that did not (according to Judge Frank Easterbrook) mean that we needed a law of it.[1]

This Wiki is initially a project of the undergraduate class at the University College London Faculty of Laws.

Core Topics in Internet Law[edit | edit source]

Core Internet Law Cases[edit | edit source]

These should be created with roughly the same approach as existing Wikiversity Law Reports, with each titled 'Wikiversity Law Reports/Name of Parties'.
