Examples of fake news, pirating, cyber bullying, flaming or Identity theft are daily newspose serious challenges to the the accountability of the net.
Accountable for their acts and omissions and under certain conditions of the malign utilization of their infrastructure. Dan Shefet, lawyer and special advisor to Unesco has in his practice seen numerous examples of misuse and abuse.
