Abstract"Regulating Code: Good Governance and Better Regulation in the Information Age." Ian Brown and Chris Marsden. MIT Press. March 2013. --- In issues from online surveillance to social media ethics and piracy, questions of internet governance surround us. In Regulating Code, authors Ian Brown and Chris Marsden make a case for multi-stakeholder co-regulation based around the function of code rather than national geographic boundaries. Alison Powell reviews the argument made through the authors’ five case studies of where regulation meets code.
