Onlife as a tool to redefine some regulatory and policy aspects. Two main points:
Regulatory works should not separate the online from the off-line in the future. Indeed, the number of gates between online and off-line are becoming so numerous that adressing each "world" separately stop being efficient.
Need to a find a balance between "top down" approaches (initiative from public authorities) and "bottom-up" approaches, i.e.self-regulatory approaches, coping with emergence of new needs and norms in society.
Need to review consumer protection, competition policy and liability issues in a hyperconnected era.
Consumption paradigm is changing: from exchange of goods, to services, to lasting relationships, enabled by ICT systems. The consumer becomes a prosumer. Need to review the balance of power between service providers of all kinds and users in these lasting commercial relationships.
Service level agreements and default contract terms and condition for users of web-platforms and social networks.
Issue of price discrimination based on personal data or profiling. The buyer should be able to know if the price s/he is offered is based on personal info/profiling info or if it is a price anybody else in the same circumnstances would be offered. Avoid fooling in price setting.
Impact on politics, elections, democracy, ...
Privacy needs to be re-thought. Privacy changes by time, context in general. Need to redefine the concept itself.
Identity to be rethought as well. Trusted fmw for identity. Anonymity, etc.

Property regulation, in an era where more and more "goods" are in flux, instead of being "exchangeable".
