Current Policies/Legislation That Relate To The Internet

I've tried to roughly categorise these as it will help us explore the policy goals of each category and whether the resulting policy meets the goal. I've also put the corresponding department alongside the policy for clarity.
It might be useful to identify the policy goals, specific (or proposed) impact on the Internet, status (in effect, proposed, etc).

Please add emerging categories and implementation mechanisms to the main page.


Below are a list of Internet related government policies and papers. Please add to the list:
