Responsibility of and trust in ISPs

Cohen-Almagor, Raphael

Authors



Abstract

This discussion is about the neglected concepts of trust and social responsibility on the Internet. I will discuss and explain the concepts and their implications to people and society. I then address the issue of moral and social responsibilities of ISPs and web-hosting companies. I argue that ISPs and web-hosting companies should aspire to take responsibility for content and that they should respect and abide by their own terms of conduct. © 2010 Springer Science+Business Media B.V.
