為什麼祖克柏要求更多網際網路法規管制?Why Zuckerberg wants more Internet regulations?

It’s easy to tell.

  1. More internet regulations mean that only the big companies have enough rent value/ resources to comply with. New competitors may hardly have the abilities to follow the rules, which could be wiped out by laws but not by competitions.
  2. Massively global regulations on the social-network markets require a lot of people who are familiar with such industries. People from Facebook would inevitably be part of the rule makers. As one of them, the monopoly power of Facebook will be raised.
  3. Nonetheless, it could be impossible to get so many complex things done in a short period, Zuckerberg still has and enjoys the new and positive PR image.

Zuckerberg is smart that he re-direct the competition from the market into the political rent-seeking area by claiming that he wants to protect the users or the privacy.

道理很簡單:
1. 更多網際網路管制下,只有Facebook這類大企業才有足夠的租值/資源去配合,直接扼殺後起新秀的生存可能性。
2. 社群媒體的大規模全球性管制,必然要引進FB現存大公司的人馬參與制定與草案起擬,這也必然等於FB搖身一變為社群媒體法律遊戲規則制定者,享有的壟斷租值又將更高。
3. 即便短時間內做不到如此大規模的法規制定與執行,祖克柏也成功藉由如此發言佔據有利公關形象。

換言之,跟許多老前輩一樣打著「保護使用者、保護隱私」等名義,其實祖克柏很聰明地將競爭導入「尋租市場」。
