Examining the development and design of regulatory structures in the online environment,The Regulation of Cyberspaceconsiders current practices and suggests a regulatory model that acknowledges its complexity and how it can be used by regulators to provide a more comprehensive regulatory structure for cyberspace.

Drawing on the work of cyber-regulatory theorists, such as Yochai Benkler, Andrew Shapiro and Lawrence Lessig, Murray explores and analyzes how all forms of control, including design and market controls, as well as traditional command and control regulation, are applied within the complex and flexible environment of cyberspace. It includes chapters on:

  • the role of the cyberlawyer
  • environmental design and control
  • online communities
  • cyber laws and cyber law-making.

This book is an essential read for anyone interested in law and information technology.

Andrew Murray is Senior Lecturer in IT and Internet Law in the Department of Law, London School of Economics.
