How Concerned Should You Be About Cybercrime-3u8813

.puters-and-Technology Cybercrimes are a problem, yet they are not among a top ten list of problems that face the typical individual. Except for the weakness of some .puters running Windows, the average person does not experience a significant cybercrime problem. This article is my opinion and is not, legal advice. I’m a judgment referral expert, and not an attorney. If you ever need legal advice or a strategy to use, you should contact an attorney. As per a historical report from the United States Department of Justice, the most .monly (federally) charged cases which involve cybercrime include: 17 U.S.C. Section 506 (a) & 18 U.S.C. Section 2319: Unauthorized Recording of a Motion Picture (Camcording). 17 U.S.C. Section 1201 (a)(1)(A), 1204(a): .mercial Theft of Trade Secrets. 18 U.S.C. Chapter 113 – Stolen Property. 18 U.S.C. Section 1030 (a)(2), (a)(4), (a)(5): Interstate Transportation, Sale or Receipt of Stolen Property. 18 U.S.C. Section 1341, 1343: Prohibition on Devices to Intercept .munications. 18 U.S.C. Section 1831: Unauthorized Access of a .puter. 18 U.S.C. Section 1832: Foreign Economic Espionage. 18 U.S.C. Section 2314, 2315: Mail and Wire Fraud Statutes. 18 U.S.C. Section 2318: Trafficking in Recordings of Live Musical Performances (Bootlegging). 18 U.S.C. Section 2319 A: Digital Millennium Copyright Act (Anti-Circumvention). The DMCA is a United States copyright law which implements treaties of the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO). It criminalizes production and distribution of devices, technology, or services, which circumvent things (Digital Rights Management or DRM) that control access to copyrighted works. It also criminalizes circumventing an access control, even if there’s no actual infringement of a copyright. In addition, the DMCA raised the penalties for copyright infringement on the Internet. The law was passed October 12, 1998, and then just weeks later, Title 17 of the United States Code got amended to extend the reach of copyright, while limiting the liability for the providers of online services for copyright infringement by their users. 18 U.S.C. Section 2319 B: Trafficking in Counterfeit Labels or Illicit Labels, Packaging Or Documentation for Copyrighted Works. 18 U.S.C. Section 2320 (a): Trafficking in Service Marks, Counterfeit Trademarks, Criminal Copyright Infringement (Misdemeanor & Felony). 18 U.S.C. Section 2512: Unauthorized Reception of Cable Service. 47 U.S.C. Section 553: Trafficking in Satellite Decryption Devices. 47 U.S.C. Section 605: Unauthorized publication or use of .munications. How valid are cybercrime stats? One problem is when laws get written like hammers, much of the world seems to be a nail. Like lots of dangers, cyber crimes and the damage from them, are sometimes wildly distorted and exaggerated. Placing every Windows .puter in back of an inexpensive router would go far in improving general internet security. The majority of those having .puters which are getting hacked, do not even know about it, and those crimes and problems are not reported, yet a downloaded MP3 file is a crime which is occasionally reported and punished. Certain cybercrimes are vastly under-reported, and some are wildly over-reported. This means that most news and statistics one cyber crime should be taken with a grain of salt. Why not keep the PC in back of a cheap router and keep your .puter updated, and either buy a Mac, and/or install good anti-virus and firewall software? About the Author: 相关的主题文章:
