  • "Cybercrime gets legislated into oblivion"

    I'm feeling safer now that so many other countries are signing on to police the Internet. Yes that's my sarcasm and here is why:

    "The legal systems in many countries are still catching up. Judges in many countries have little or no experience handling cybercrime cases since the technology came along far after they were trained." See the story below:

    OMG! This sounds like most of the stupid lawyers and judges in the U.S. who would not know a bot from a bot herder!

    Actually, I'm feeling far less safe. At least I have the right to a fair trail with savvy counsel, judge, and jury in the U.S. right? Oh yea, no law says I'm entitled to a savvy counsel, judge, or jury so I guess I'll see you all in 10! Right?

    Actually what's more interesting are the countries that didn't sign, all big surprises there(dripping with sarcasm).

    Just because you can doesn't mean you should. This applies to making babies, hacking, and youtube videos.

      Law always lags behind technology. A quick example from 100 years ago: there wasn't a need for speed limits before cars came along and a critical level of drivers going too fast became an issue. Do you think lawyers and judges were any more clued-in about cars initially than they are today about the Innertubes? Somehow, I doubt it. Pick any area where law and technology collide, and the same gap will be there.
