TBH, it would look a lot like the IPFS approach, ie a system for reporting issues that declares an intention to resolve the issues by implementing a tried and tested legal framework.
The main problem is that real life is plain old messy. Dealing with it requires a complex decision tree; if A, consider B, if B consider C, if not C, consider D.This is what Laws provide. I understand that other participants on these threads have issues with the sources of Laws. It is not my intention to suggest one over the other because of a cultural, or ethnic leaning, but because the creation of a brand new framework will take years as it wont be recognised in any jurisdiction and will therefore be costly proving it is fit for purpose time and time again in legal challenges across the globe.
It is, of course, vital to point out that no system is perfect, so the choice becomes does one use a Nation State’s legal framework, or (my preference) a document from the United Nations, which will suggest an ideal towards which all Nation States should aspire. This would seem as reasonable an approach as is possible for counteracting the activity of rogue, or authoritarian states.
The UN is working on the inclusion of free access to the internet as a Human Right (UN declares online freedom to be a human right that must be protected | The Independent | The Independent). As an example, the child safeguarding framework I used was derived from National Law by Counties, but the fundamental principles we worked with were taken from the UN Children’s Charter, which states “The Rights of the Child are Paramount”.
IMO, Dfinity needs to clearly define the role of different node provider types using language existing systems recognise. As a consequence of this definition it should become clear that node providers enjoy at least the same level of protection afforded to existing internet infrastructure providers. Most importantly, this should then enable the most vulnerable members of our global society, e.g. slaves, to
know that if their plight comes to light on the internet, or internet computer, there is a reasonable chance society will be able to act in their best interest.
This is at the heart of my personal politics and approach to daily living, society must be able to protect the most vulnerable.
I think I have gone off the reservation a bit here, but hope the answer you are looking for is apparent.
