BredowCast 55: Die Normative Ordnung des Internets

Matthias C. Kettemann writes about the emergence and nature of the normative order of the Internet in his new book "The Normative Order of the Internet", which can be downloaded for free. In this BredowCast he gives a first insight into the topic.
There are rules on the Internet. That much we have learned by now. If we insult someone online or spread lies, it can have consequences in real life. However, the rules of the Internet are so complex that you can write a book of over 300 pages about them. This is what Matthias C. Kettemann did.
In "The Normative Order of the Internet", the media lawyer analyses in detail who sets rules on the Internet, what they are made of and who can enforce compliance with them. In doing so, Kettemann refers to the theory of the "Normative Order", which states that every right set by any person within a society must be based on a narrative that is accepted by everyone in that society. This is the only way that law becomes legitimate.
The book was published by Oxford University Press at the end of July and is available as Open Access.
