Response to the question

In summary, the report does show an in-depth understanding of how regulation could effect the growth of the internet in the near future. However case studies could be used to link the background understanding to a commercial environment. The report states how eCommerce websites should only have minimal regulation, to allow eCommerce websites to grow and develop. This section is good, as this clearly states the reasons to why there should be little regulation and the student has justified their reasoning.

Level of analysis

The report is quite in-depth, and each point is justified were appropriate. However the report is lacking a number of real case studies. For example the report could include how the regulation will effect a website such as HMV. The report could go further, and mention how the intended laws could impact on their business and their ability to grow using the on-line market.

Quality of writing

A number of technical terms are used and explained. For instance the term 'CAs' is explained and the student has given a brief definition. However there are a limited number of technical terms that are mentioned, however not explained. All technical terms will need to be explained, to allow the examiner to understand the report with ease.
