In today’s age, almost everybody has access to computers, smartphones, tablets, and the Internet as a whole. Some people access the internet from their home and office. Others do so from a public place, such as a local library.
Regardless of who you are or where you are located, nothing changes the fact that surveillance of the Internet is on the rise. In some ways, this is a good thing as it goes a long way in keeping people safe. However, there are times when police take things too far, targeting a person for a crime that he or she did not commit.
There are many types of cybercrime, with some of the most common including:
— Electronic fraud
— Identity theft or forgery
— Unauthorized access
— Misuse of a device
— Data interference
— Invasion of privacy
— Illegal interceptions
— Harassment and stalking
With some of these crimes, it is easy to see how there could be gray area. For example, you may consider your activity of following a person online friendly. That person, however, could consider this stalking and/or harassment. As a result, it’s not inconceivable to believe you could be charged with a crime you did not commit.
