In recent years there has been a debate as to whether access to the internet can now be considered a human right. If internet access is a human right then this would raise the question as to whether it is possible to ever restrict an individual's internet access or make it subject to limitations. One area where individuals are currently the subject of limitations is child sex offences where some internet offenders have access to the internet either prohibited or subject to significant limitations. This article considers the approach and legality of such restrictions by focusing on two jurisdictions; England and Wales and the United States of America.
