Chris Marsden argues that co-regulation is the defining feature of the Internet in Europe. Co-regulation offers the state a route back into questions of legitimacy, governance and human rights, thereby opening up more interesting conversations than a static no-regulation versus state regulation binary choice. The basis for the argument is empirical investigation, based on a multi-year, European Commission-funded study and is further reinforced by the direction of travel in European and English law and policy, including the Digital Economy Act 2010. He places Internet regulation within the regulatory mainstream, as an advanced technocratic form of self- and co-regulation which requires governance reform to address a growing constitutional legitimacy gap. The literature review, case studies and analysis shed a welcome light on policymaking at the centre of Internet regulation in Brussels, London and Washington, revealing the extent to which states, firms and, increasingly, citizens are developing a new type of regulatory bargain.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'... this work is to be commended as a scholarly and genuine attempt to offer a pragmatic and reasoned solution to a fraught debate where options have too often been limited to a stark binary choice between state regulation or self management.' Martina Gillen, International Journal of Law and Information Technology
'This ambitious work is a broad yet comprehensive analysis of the challenges and technical and legal complexities involved in the co-regulation of cyberspace within the EU ... Marsden's research, both evidence-based and cutting-edge, provides a broad and theoretical though clear overview of the complex legal and technical issues involved in the regulation of the Internet. In particular, this book is an invaluable source of information for those interested in regulatory reform and the ongoing challenges posed by Internet co-regulation.' The Cambridge Law Journal
