Net Jurisdiction Study Finds New Digital Divide

Professor Geist’s regular Toronto Star Law Bytes column (Toronto Star version, HTML backup article) highlights the results of an ABA/ICC global Internet jurisdiction study released over the weekend.

It also found that an "Internet jurisdiction risk toolkit" is emerging where companies target low risk jurisdictions and take steps to avoid doing business in perceived high risk jurisdictions.
