'Some Americans believe that government agencies should regulate the internet, setting guidelines for its contents and limiting access to databases containing personal information. Determine your opinion. List reasons why you support or oppose regulations of the internet.'
I think that regulations on the internet would be good for people, but the only reason that I can come up with in my list is: People can be sure that their private information on social networking websites etc. will be safe and not open for everyone to see.
Can I please get some more reasons? Thanks
Although the Constitution guarantees freedom of speech, some things posted on the internet aren't much different than falsely yelling "Fire!" in a crowded theater.
Consider the most recent tragedy of a Rutgers student who committed suicide after someone posted a video showing him in an intimate relationship.
You should be able to find more ideas in some of these sites.
Thanks. I read a few articles about the Rutgers student earlier this week, also.
