Jurisdiction is a vital and a central feature of state sovereignty. The concept has existed for centuries as a recognised doctrine in international law. It can be argued that jurisdiction has been an important issue in the international community much longer than international law has even been considered a separate field of law. These old and conservative rules mark the boundaries of law but have evolved with technology and the progress of mankind.
Today, this set of rules faces a new reality not foreseen for the better part of the existence of the concept of jurisdiction. The cyberworld, most commonly entered through the internet, does not have jurisdictional boundaries in the same legal sense the territorial boundaries of States do. The rules that govern the jurisdiction of States and other international entities were not formed with this new reality in mind. They are therefore not as easily applicable to the vastly transnational actions of billions of individuals internationally everyday. This dissertation is an attempt to apply these old rules of public international law based on various customs and doctrines to the contemporary, yet fast-evolving, cyberworld.
