and Offensive content on the Information Highway
- A Background Paper by Gareth
Sansom. "The purpose of this document is to assess to what extent the new
communications technologies are altering the parameters of what we define
as offensive communications, and how well our existing legal and societal
responses to offensive content work in a digital environment. ... This paper
focuses on offensive communication that enters the realm of illegality, in
particular, the following four areas: (1) obscenity and child pornography;
(2) sexual harassment (including obscene e-mail, "net-stalking", and display
of pornographic material in a public place); (3) hate propaganda; and (4)
defamation and libel."
