Abstract:
This thesis examines approaches to online political speech regulation in a comparative context of three countries: the United Kingdom, the United States of America and Thailand. Four main areas of legal development are selected as the focus of online speech regulation: defamation law, hate speech law, law on speech which incites or advocates terrorism, and ISP liability law. The comparative discussion takes into account each nation’s particular cultural, legal and constitutional backrounds. The thesis aims to provide a fuller insight into the diverse legal approaches of the three countries in solving some common legal problems in the age of Internet communication.
