Arguments for Regulation
Arguments Against Regulation

From the Paper:

"Since the advent of the Internet, there has been a palpable enthusiasm about its vast range of possible uses. Internet usage, which comprises of ease of communication, cheap means of accessing more information and the potential for home shopping, however does not remain limited to that. The dangers posted by and the consequent abuses of the Internet usage are just as diverse. Loss of personal contact, reliability of information, abuse of personal details and a deepening of the division between technology- rich and technology- poor are some of the problems that tend to neutralize the benefits. The regulatory goals include maintenance of discussion and perpetual work on licensing regulations for Internet providers as long as the licensing must not be used as a tool to curtail competitiveness; creation of a working group to prepare propositions for draft laws on Internet issues and to accelerate the preparation of draft laws on such as "On protection of information in information and telecommunication systems", "On electronic documents", "On digital signatures", "On protection of personal data" and creation of working groups to draw up mechanisms of protection of information, monitoring and filtration of illegal information."
