CYBER SOVEREIGNTY & CYBERLAW
Cyberspace has brought across distinctly new fertile areas for the potential growth of new concepts. One of the new concepts that we are beginning to hear lately is the concept of cyber sovereignty. At a first look, the entire concept of cyber sovereignty has various connotations. We all thought that cyberspace created a boundary-less medium and that being so, it was a common heritage for humanity as a whole. Hence, any talk of sovereignty in cyberspace itself runs contra to the concept of cyberspace. However, as countries have woken up to the significance and impact of cyberspace, they are now increasingly propagating and expanding the scope of the new legal concept known as cyber sovereignty.
Cyber sovereignty as a new concept talks about protection and preservation of sovereign interests in cyberspace. This Book seeks to examine the concept of cyber sovereignty, how it is evolving, what are its salient features of and how different countries through national legislations and provisions therein are slowly pushing the development of the concept of cyber sovereignty. This Book not only examines the benefits and advantages of cyber sovereignty but also highlights the challenges and difficulties that are likely to emerge in this regard. Given the fact that there is no one international Cyberlaw in place and the fact that there is no one international adjudicatory authority to adjudicate the disputes concerning cyber sovereignty, it is increasingly very clear that cyber sovereignty bring across far more new challenges as far as growth of Cyberlaw jurisprudence is concerned. All said and done, cyber sovereignty will be increasingly important aspect of Cyberlaw jurisprudence in the coming times.
This Book has been written at a very early stage of development concerning cyber sovereignty. I hope it could be a starting point for the evolution of discussion and debate about the evolving jurisprudence concerning cyber sovereignty. This book should be of value to not just lawyers, legal professionals, lawyers, judges, academicians, nation states, governments but also other stakeholders, who are concerned with how practically the concept of cyber sovereignty is beginning to evolve and is likely to sustain and consolidate in the coming times.
