Code Laws - Code that Implements Policy

Bill Fitler on "Code Laws" of Cyberspace

In Code and Other Laws of Cyberspace, Lawrence Lessig describes four types of constraints that regulate behavior on the Internet: legal, normative, market and architectural. While he described a number of the laws that had been passed, I felt there could have been more detail on the specific controlling technologies - "code laws" - that have been implemented. Furthermore, I thought it would be useful to start to measure how pervasive these code laws are, i.e., how much technological overhead can be attributed to control and policy enforcement technologies. So I put together a survey of technologies substantially involved in regulating the Internet, i.e. the "code laws" of cyberspace.
