Update online rights code

This code was published in the year 2001 and looked at that stage only at e-mail and internet. In the meantime we have migrated to Web 2.0 applications, which provide completely new opportunities for communication. There are also some pitfalls for employees in particular using these tool for private purposes while they are at work.
We want to re-write the code, update it to cover the current situation.

You find the text of the code in this blog. Your comments and views are welcome. Please feel free to suggest changes and updates.

Thank you.
