By: Scott C. Hutchison, B.A., LL.B., Robert W. Davis, B.A., C.F.E.
Availability: In Stock
“It undoubtedly is required reading for any peace officer working in the area of technological crime or for any party responsible for technological security in an organization.” The Honourable Justice E.A. Marshall Court of Queen's Bench of Alberta Computers offer a number of challenges to the criminal justice system. These challenges are both practical and legal. Computers offer new ways to commit old offences, suggest legislators should create new computer-specific offences, and present investigators with fresh opportunities to gather evidence and build cases. This text seeks to identify and address some of the practical, technological and legal issues associated with computer criminal activity, and offers a consideration of the current state of the substantive and procedural law surrounding these issues • criminal and non-criminal solutions • criminal copyright law • offences directed at computers • mischief to data • theft of telecommunications services • speech-like offences • evidence gathering • search and seizure.
