Introduction and Terms of Reference

Background
This WP was formed in 1998 to provide a focus for discussion of issues surrounding the regulation of the Internet, especially in the context of several inter-related draft European Directives which, at least in their early versions, were at times mutually contradictory.  The working party's outputs covered comment on these drafts with a particular focus on the Electronic Commerce Directive and a valuable set of guidance notes on some practical issues that were getting in the way of effective decision making.

Other issues that the group tackled include:

 

Group Leadership
