As the internet has improved our ability to interact and communicate, so has it become the subject of increased regulation and the conduit for an increasing number of offences from those involving pornography and indecent images to those involving libel and hate-speech, through to technical crimes like illegal downloading and ‘hacking’.
Internet Criminal Defence Lawyers Alloa, Fife, Dundee, Edinburgh & Stirling
Given the wide range of offences which can be committed on the internet, it is important that you seek out a specialist IT/internet crime law firm.
The law relating to internet offences is in a constant state of flux as courts and Parliament struggle to keep pace with technological change. Sometimes known as ‘internet crime’, ‘cybercrime’ or ‘computer crime’, the pace of change can make it difficult for accused persons to know what the law is at any given moment.
We can defend our clients against charges of:
• Terrorism-related online offences
• Identity theft and ‘phishing’
• Illegal downloading (copyright theft)
• Spreading malicious content (viruses and other programs)
• Offences related to online pornography and indecent images
• Offences related to social media – libel, bullying and ‘hate speech’ related offences including racist and sectarian speech
This is a fast-growing, serious and sensitive area of law and one which requires expert handling, particularly in relation to pornography and child pornography-related offences.
