Criminal law & procedure; Computer fraud & hacking
Digital technology has transformed the way in which we socialise and do business. Proving the maxim that crime follows opportunity, virtually every advance has been accompanied by a corresponding niche to be exploited for criminal purposes; so-called 'cybercrimes'. Whether it be fraud, child pornography, stalking, criminal copyright infringement or attacks on computers themselves, criminals will find ways to exploit new technology. The challenge for all countries is to ensure their criminal laws keep pace. The challenge is a global one, and much can be learned from the experience of other jurisdictions. Focusing on Australia, Canada, the UK and the USA, this book provides a comprehensive analysis of the legal principles that apply to the prosecution of cybercrimes. This new edition has been fully revised to take into account changes in online offending, as well as new case law and legislation in this rapidly developing area of the law.

Reviews for Principles of Cybercrime

'As a doctrinal analysis, this title is likely to become a classic among cyber crime titles and will be useful to attorneys, researchers, students and general readers seeking to understand the interconnected relationship these four countries have developed in their separate and joint battles against cyber crime.' Laurie Selwyn, Freelance Law Librarian 'Even for a non-lawyer, such as this reviewer, the concepts are well clarified and the language is accessible. It should probably sit on the shelves of anyone involved in the prevention, investigation or prosecution of CyberCrime and, more importantly, be taken down, read and referred to regularly. It will certainly form part of my library and is likely to find its way onto my students' reading lists.' Angus M. Marshal, Lecturer in CyberSecurity and Independent 'Expert' on Digital Evidence 'As a doctrinal analysis, this title is likely to become a classic among cyber crime titles and will be useful to attorneys, researchers, students and general readers seeking to understand the interconnected relationship these four countries have developed in their separate and joint battles against cyber crime.'
