DARKNET, ANONYMITY & LAW
Over the last few years, we have begun to hear more frequent mention of the darknet in the mainstream media. Increasingly now we are finding that media is reporting about different aspects of the darknet. This is also coupled with the fact that a majority of stakeholders still do not want to believe in the existence of the darknet. This is notwithstanding the fact that darknet as a phenomenon and paradigm distinctly exists. Darknet is getting more and more center-stage attention with the passage of time.
At the same time, darknet is also increasingly being used by cybercriminals for the purposes of perpetuating cyber criminal activities and engaging in all kinds of criminal or illegal behaviour which is ultimately aimed to give effect to criminal intentions and purposes.
This eBook seeks to identify some of the practical legal, policy and regulatory challenges that anonymity on the darknet presents before lawmakers and legislators.
The darknet is a network of the future. However, the future has already begun. The legal frameworks, which are already shaped in the past, have to shake free out of the shackles of the past and come up with innovative new mechanisms, approaches and paradigms as also perspectives to deal with emerging new complex policy and legal challenges thrown up by legal issues like anonymity on the darknet.
This eBook should be of value to all stakeholders on the darknet for the purposes of identifying the practical legal challenges that the darknet today faces before legal regimes and how the same could be potentially addressed in the coming times.
I hope this eBook will be of value to all the readers, who are interested in understanding the concept of darknet and anonymity.
