Abstract:

Problematic Internet usage is currently leading to workplace reprimands and employee termination, and has also been used as a defence to criminal charges in the United States. This article discusses the concept of Internet addiction. There have been attempts to medicalise this putative behavioural addiction drawing from DSM-IVTR criteria for substance abuse and pathological gambling. The grounds for this position and its legal and clinical implications are outlined.
