Internet security has long been a topic of discussion both in the U.S. and abroad. Recently, the U.S. and the U.K. held a conference in which they recommended principles for cooperation on internet law among various nations. The principles aim to protect freedom of expression and privacy, while preventing online crime. While several western nations have indicated their approval of the principles, other countries have expressed concern over the protection of freedom of expression. For example, China, Russia, and two other countries have asked other states to “curb the dissemination of information that ‘undermines other countries’ political, economic and social stability, as well as their spiritual and cultural environment.’” Obviously, different countries have different views on how the internet should be policed, but is the internet something that can be the subject of international law? Should it be? How will the various nations of the world ever be able to come to agreement on policies when they have such different laws and beliefs?
