We identify and clarify some distinctions we believe are useful in establishing the reliability of information on the Internet. We begin by examining some of the salient features of information that go into the determination of reliability. In so doing, we argue that we need to distinguish content and pedigree criteria of reliability and that we need to separate issues of reliability of information from the issues of the accessibility and the usability of information. We then turn to an analysis of some common failures to recognize reliability and unreliability. Keywords: epistemology, ethics, information, Internet, reliability, truth.
