The Internet has had an AUP (Acceptable Use Policy) from its origins as the 
ARPANET, because the Internet was a government-sponsored network.  The AUP 
was gradually relaxed because of commercial pressure.  Legislation in 1992 
led the National Science Foundation to allow commercial use of the NSFNET.

privatization of the Internet which is available at
