Cyberlaw, digital law or internet law is a complex legal field that is comprised of many areas: censorship, cyberterrorism, digital copyright, phishing & fraud, privacy, net neutrality, security, social media law... the list goes on.
Any internet user is subject to laws pertaining to the online world, but individuals and entities such as creative professionals, media publishers, entrepreneurs and business owners should especially keep informed on legal issues and news in the digital industry.
So, we've compiled a list of the top internet law feeds to follow on Twitter. Why this particular list? Well, it's based on Twitter data culled according to content, follower/following ratios, frequency of tweets, blog popularity, the opinions of other digital law experts and influencers, as well as our own subjective judgment.
Note that some influential voices are not included, either because they don't have active Twitter accounts, or because they only tweet about cyberlaw sporadically. Here, our goal is to provide the best possible stream of internet law news and insight.
