Dear Michael,

             The subject you study is interesting. But Iam afraid if you
can find a global solution. As an intellectual property specialist, I can
tell you that unless there are convenants signed amongst the countries
there cannot be any restriction in the flow of data in the cyberspace. For
more and specific information please do contact me.
