    There are regulations for the web, if you run a business on the web from a certain country you still have to comply with their laws (intellectual property, accessibility, no-kiddie porno, no-terrorism, filing taxes, no-fraud, privacy, etc). Granted it's not exactly a scenario which regulates businesses based on their practices but let's face facts here. Government's don't understand the Internet (even the US Gov which funded it's creation), if you wanted to regulate something like web design (for example), there's no way you could really control practices beyond the standards which exist as a barrier for entry as things change too quickly to be moderated.
