Application: Cybercrime Legislation
If in 1985 someone was asked to define the word sexting, he or she probably would be at a loss for words since that concept did not yet exist. “Sexting” is the combination of sex and texting and is the act of sending sexually explicit messages and/or photos between mobile phones. Barkacs and Barkacs (2010) have reported that 20% to 39% of U.S. teenagers have engaged in sexting.
When “sexting” includes minors, legal issues and considerations are exacerbated, which may lead to prosecution for crimes like possession and dissemination of child pornography. When one adds the concept of non-consent, the issues related to the prosecution of “sexting” become even more challenging. As new crimes emerge using advancements in technology, new legislation must be created in an attempt to prevent and address those crimes.
For this assignment, select a type of cybercrime (i.e., cyber-stalking, cyber-bullying, cyber-porn, sexting). Identify a piece of legislation related to that type of cybercrime that is more than 5 years old. Then identify a current piece of legislation related to that type of cybercrime.
