THE INTERNET: WHAT IT IS AND WHAT IT COULD BECOME

Abstract: We live in a web based world. The day-to-day functioning of our lives is dependent upon the connectivity that the Internet provides. The web is a host for every mundane or academic activity for which the human mind has capacity. But who actually controls the Internet? What regulations are currently in place and what changes are being considered? This paper examines these questions in order to think about how the Internet can remain a safe, useful, and legal tool as its role in society continues to grow.

Keywords: the internet, society, rules, safety
