I am just wondering if the internet is considered a public or private space legally. Is the internet considered a form of media, like print or television? If so, does this make the interent a public space, and/or a form of broadcasting? Since people can be sued for libel for what they say on a website, I always thought this implied the internet was considered 'public'. I'm particularly interested in the Canadian law on this if there is anyone who knows, as I live in Canada. But I'm also curious how the US government legally views the internet and if it differs. Appreciate knowledgable replies. Thanks.
