The cyberspace is not a 'no law land': C2-312/1997E-PDF
a study of the issues of liability for content circulating on the Internet /
"The Internet revolution poses various challenges in applying, enforcing and abiding by existing laws. If amendments to existing laws are needed, they should only be made in a de minimis way and in a way as technologically neutral as possible under the circumstances. Legislators should also be mindful of the need to balance the interests of the users, publishers and disseminators on the one hand, and those of the authors, on the other, while preserving freedom of expression and only imposing limits on such freedom as necessary in a free and democratic society"--Summary conclusion, p. 23.
