Internet Layers and the Law

In a paper (pdf) titled "The Layers Principle: Internet Architecture and the Law" Lawrence Solum and Chung of Layola Law School argue that the Internet should be regulated according the layering principle that is the fundamental technical underpinning of the Internet Architecture. They examine the end-to-end principle in detail and look at layer-crossing violations, all of it in a context of Internet regulations. It is a interesting read, given the mixture of fundamental networking principles and regulation law.
