Legal Case Study – Chilean Net Neutrality

13 August 2012

Today we want to introduce our second programme of transdisciplinary academic discussion papers. The series is called Legal Materials and Case Studies and promotes papers that relate to law and the Internet from all around the world and in every language it provides. We also want to encourage you to discuss theses, research topics and methods of these papers with us and each author here on this blog. So, if you have any comments, questions, proposals or criticism – we are looking forward to it. Going first is Moya García with an entry in Spanish about the Chilean net neutrality and its legal circumstances:

Abstract: The Chilean legal order is interesting for Internet governance research and constitutional practice. The country has pioneered the liberalization of the telecommunication market and the introduction of the principle of net neutrality. There is much to be researched in regard to the reasons for an emerging economy to do so, as well as the implications of that strategy. This report undertakes a mapping of those Chilean legal norms that touch upon fundamental norms and offers an analysis of a possible relationship between technological progress, Internet regulation and constitutional principles.

Keywords: Legal mapping, Internet regulation, fundamental rights, Chilean law, equality, privacy, property rights, petition right

Language: Spanish
