The ability of inhabitants of cyberspace to cross borders at will between legally significant territories many times in a single day is unsettling. This power seems to undercut the validity ofdeveloping distinct laws for online culture and commerce: how can these rules be "law" if participants can literally tum them on and off with a switch? Frequent online travel might subject relatively mobile human beings to a far larger number of rule sets than they would encounter traveling through the physical world over the same period.
Clear boundaries make law possible, encouraging rapid differen tiation between rule sets and defining the subjects of legal discus sion. New abilities to travel or exchange information rapidly across old borders may change the legal frame of reference and require fundamental changes in legal institutions. Fundamental activities oflaw-making-accommodating conflicting claims, defining prop erty rights, establishing rules to guide conduct, enforcing those rules, and resolving disputes-remain very much alive within the newly defined, intangible territory of cyberspace.
