Are we Stuck in an Era of Jurisdictional Hyper-regulation

Abstract

[Extract] Elsewhere, I have sought to bring attention to the fact that we are now in what may be described as an era of hyper-regulation online; that is, even our most mundane online activities expose us to (1) the risk of being brought before the courts in an overwhelming number of jurisdictions, and (2) the laws of an equally overwhelming number of jurisdictions.
In this contribution, I will describe why this is so. I will also attempt to provide suggestions for some steps we may take to minimise the negative consequences of this, or even to move away from hyper-regulation.
But first, I will provide a brief description of how we arrived at this stage, and I will try to define exactly what I mean by hyper-regulation (something that should have been done already quite some time ago).
