Many people accused of internet offending have themselves been duped or taken advantage of by others. Cyberlaw or Internet law is a term that encapsulates legal issues related to use of the Internet. It is less a distinct field of law than intellectual property or contract law, as it is a domain covering many areas of law and regulation.The reasons for this are perhaps obvious, people are by and large less sure of what they need to do to protect their security online and those committing crime can reach many people simultaneously. Also, the police require significant resources to detect and prosecute complex crime of this nature.
