Does Germany need a digital code? Responsibility, platforms and social standards on the Internet
The study was conducted by iRights.Lab on behalf of the German Institute for Trust and Security on the Internet (DIVSI) and can be downloaded free of charge from our website.
In the analogue world, rules of conduct have developed over centuries, a span of time that has simply not yet passed in the comparatively young digital world. Nearly all of us are online, but there remains little agreement about what constitutes acceptable behavior there, how to deal with data and who is responsible for what. As part of an extensive project commissioned by the German Institute for Trust and Security on the Internet (DIVSI), we have looked into these questions and developed concrete proposals for solutions.
