Internet: An Overview of Key Technology Policy Issues Affecting Its Use and Growth

Description:

The continued growth of the Internet for personal, government, and business
purposes may be affected by a number of technology policy issues being debated by
Congress. Among them are access to and regulation of broadband (high-speed)
Internet services, computer and Internet security, Internet privacy, the impact of
“spam,” concerns about what children may encounter (such as pornography) when
using the Internet, management of the Internet Domain Name System, and
government information technology management.
This report provides overviews of those issues, plus appendices providing a list
of pending legislation, a list of acronyms, a discussion of legislation passed in
earlier Congresses, and a list of other CRS reports that provide more detail on these
and related topics.
