LAW331  A  VIMEO, TWITTER AND YOUTUBE: ONLINE LIABILITY AND NET NEUTRALITY

Course Description
The Internet allows individuals to share ideas and creative works with the world in real time with little to no cost. But what happens when people use the Internet maliciously? Do websites bear any responsibility to police their users? At the same time, do websites hold too much power in determining acceptable speech? This short course will explore the liability of websites for their users’ content, the government’s authority to regulate the Internet, and the ability of Internet service providers to discriminate against certain types of Internet traffic and content (net neutrality).
