How to Make Bad Law

The overriding theme of my research project is the mistakes we have made in the law covering online activities, and how to fix them. I'm currently working on the idea that one reason for our mistakes is a desire for excessive precision in the law. I presented the first part of this work in a seminar earlier this week, and the slides ( and written paper ( are now available - these are very much discussion drafts, not my definitive thoughts.

Part 2 will appear in early December.

Some of my earlier work on other aspects of this issue is available online:

“The Law of Unintended Consequences – embedded business models in IT regulation”, (2007) 2 JILT

“Taking Sides on Technology Neutrality”, (2007) 4:3 SCRIPT-ed 263
