What is the WWW and Internet?

The WWW stands for World Wide Web and the Internet is the whole thing. Yes, AOLers and newbies of the Internet. The WWW is part of the Internet, as is e-mail, file-sharing, Video conferencing, and UseNet. Unlike contrary belief the USA government made the Internet.

And most court cases are determined by who has the deeper pockets and connections, "Big Business" or college students?
