The internet is almost a separate space that operates alongside the real world, should there not be different laws applied, and should that not have to be ubiquitous for all users of the internet? Forming an overriding set of international laws to govern the internet could help to deal with the problems of hacking other countries and defamation cases such as the Saudi case. But they could also help resolve cases of whistleblowing (the Snowden, Assange, and Manning cases) that have led to torture, or an escape of it, and the breaking of international human rights. The current situation of certain countries harbouring other countries “criminals” for political reasons needs to end but at the same time international law needs to be upheld. The world needs a set of guidelines to make obvious what does and does not constitute crime online, as multiple cases have demonstrated that a world on the internet is filled with legal nuances.
