The Internet enjoyed a childhood largely over-looked by policy makers—a “light regulatory touch”. But as its impact on the economy and on society grows, policy makers are now looking to develop new regulatory models. In doing so, they face not only the obvious challenge of keeping pace with technological change and its impact on the society, but also the conflicting advice of third parties. This leads to two questions: what should be the new models; and can they be enacted.
