International Internet Law is dealing with Internet regulation. The principal regulatory aim is to guarantee sufficient and reliable information and communication services available for all. Moreover, Internet regulation in a broad sense comprises the protection of individual freedoms and the prevention of dangers. Whereas the Internet and its users must be protected against dangers, certain threats may result just from the use of the internet. In this context, positive State obligations arising out of international human rights norms complement the regulatory framework. International Internet Law is a cross-sectional matter with emphases on the protection of human rights, on international institutional law and on international economic law. It is not only of practical relevance, but also an important field of reference. Asking how international law addresses the issues of the Internet is leading to the basis of international law and its evolution.
