Issues of Internet jurisdiction remain a key challenge for the application of law to the online environment. Despite of a large volume of academic writings on the topic, these issues continue to be perceived as complex and inaccessible. This article aims to provide an accessible introduction to private international law as it applies to the Internet. As such, it is hoped that it may be a useful resource for courses in IT law, Internet law, e-commerce law or the like, as well as for anyone looking to refresh their understanding of exactly what it is that people are struggling with in the field we may call Internet jurisdiction.
