Jack Goldsmith, Sovereign Difference and Sovereign Deference on the Internet, 128 Yale L.J. F. 818 (2019).
Abstract: This Response to Andrew Woods makes two points. First, building on one of Woods’s claims, and drawing on the work of Milton Mueller, it shows why the “fragmentation” charge frequently levied against sovereignty-based approaches to internet governance is misplaced. Second, it raises questions about the efficacy of Woods’s normative theory of judicial comity.
