subsection heading icon     introduction

This site is structured around some twenty guides, each of which comprises between 12 and 30 pages, that consider major areas of interest such as privacy, intellectual property, electronic publishing, internet governance and censorship.

Discussion in those guides is supplemented by notes and profiles that have a narrower focus, covering for example the operation of the trademark system, the Australia Card, droit de suite, search engine optimisation and spam regulation.

Some users of the site have relied on the guides; others have drilled down or gone direct to particular notes. Overall there are around 1,820 pages (some 2.4 million words), so you may wish to rely on the search engine.
