Everyone use the internet to communicate with one
another. Without the Internet, it would be both more expensive and slower to
maintain personal and professional relationships.

This research title Ethics, Law and Technology: A case
study in Computer-Mediated Communication explicates this debate by weighing the
merits of community self-regulation and technological regulation though an
examination of the development and use of interactive at an adult-oriented web
site. For me, Computer-Mediated Communication includes various types of
text-based online chat, computer, audio, and video conferencing. Where the creation
of the computer changed the face of interpersonal communication. It provide
even further to this kind of change. Through the use of  internet we can communicate with others
online, through text, in almost any part of the world at any time. In many
cases, people can interact by computer more than face to face or by phone.

Judge Stewart Dalzell, quoted that the Internet “as
the most participatory form of mass speech yet developed” which will help
everyone especially with the passion of Internet. By the 1999 another federal
district judge addressed a second law that sought to regulate expression to the
Internet. Robert Ellickson’s indicate that the framework for behavioural
controls is a useful starting point for a discussion of the various forces
governing individual behaviour in electronic networks. He also identifies five
controllers that can provide substantive rules governing an individual’s behaviour.
One is the actor him/herself, other individuals being acted upon, non-
hierarchically organized social forces, hierarchically-organized
non-governmental organizations, and governments. There are so many barriers to
behavior that are not helpful for many people. Because of the restraint in the
form of behavior is not just a problem that it can bring to a person but can
make a different sin. I can say the basis for development is the protection of
the human rights of the people. There is no place in a government that promises
a change if the path is overwhelmed by the blood of the people. Also in the
article of Ethics, Law and Technology. A case study in Computer-Mediated
Communication detail about the challenges to traditional legal constraint and
technological challenge.

Technology is increasing the ability to discover and
access resources once thought to be inaccessible or unrecoverable and with the
use of internet
it also allows people within an organization to easily communicate and share
information. Technology is also enabling mature fields to be a
significant source of production for many more years than initially planned.
What follow are the key industry challenges where our technology, experience,
and commitment to service excellence are helping meet the demands of the
future. In this article characterize that the United States is the source of a
very great deal of Internet content, in which now has constitutional protection
in the United States. Even if other nations found the material offensive and
illegal under their own laws, some countries might despair of trying to
regulate such a huge body of Internet material originating outside their
borders. Eugene Volokh, a UCLA professor of law, foreign countries will have
very little power to stop it. So one can imagine foreign countries being
influenced by the sheer impossibility of doing it. The technical challenge of
regulating on-line transactions, however, is something of a sideshow as the
worldwide conversation constituted by the internet brings about a fundamental
transformation of our traditional concepts of law and ethics.

The Internet
introduces technology that poses new challenges to the protection of individual
privacy in the political/legal challenges, in the field of
communication-information policy, there is no coherent social movement around
Internet governance around the issues of gender or environmentalism. As the
Internet it plays a larger role in governance and activism. The discourse continues
about how social are changing politics that addressing topics such as whether
or not the Internet is leading to increased political polarization. It refers
to the principles of right and wrong that individuals, acting as free moral
agents use to make choices to guide their behavior. In the Community-Based
Regulation Johnson and Post argue that the technical protocols of the Internet
have created a complex adaptive system that produces social order independent
of traditional legal means. They contend that the same decentralized decision
making that created the net at a technical level, may be able to create a
workable form of order at a higher level. One is the realm of rules applicable
to the collective social evaluation and governance of human behaviour. There
are operational and theoretical arguments to support this contention.

Internet as
operating system includes special functions for connecting computers and
devices into a network that generally reserved for software that enhances a
basic operating system by adding networking features. By consensus established
that HTTP was required to communicate on the World- Wide-Web. Communicators are
free to decline to use any standard or obey any protocol.

Social norm is the understanding people can influence our behavior
in day to day basis. This social norms there is implicit rules which, is known
as the not spoken but, you learn them when you separate from the rule by
breaking the social norms in society such as, values, attitudes, morals and
behavior. People will tend to follow the norms of society or the group but, not
following the social norms of society, individuals might think your nonconformist.
By 0 Connell contends that this accomplishment due, not to the technological
features of computers, but due to the plasticity by which networked
communications have allowed users to build their own environments.
