Laws and Guidelines using the Internet

Two laws which the company will have to abide by:-

1. The Electronic Communications Act has been written specifically for the online world. In general the laws are the same as everyday laws including subjects such as libel, threatening, bullying, harassing, making racist remarks etc.

2. Everything on the Internet is considered electronic media or digital works. Those works are protected by copyright law even if they are transferred to hard copy by scanning and printing them out; or whether they are just copied and pasted digitally from one web site to another. Electronic mail (email) can't even be posted without the owner's consent.
