The fundamental principle of criminology is that crime follows opportunity, and opportunities for theft abound in the digital age. Electronic Theft names, describes and analyses the range of electronic and digital theft, and constitutes the first major survey of the field.The authors cover a broad list of electronic misdemeanours, including extortion, defrauding governments, telephone fraud, securities fraud, deceptive advertising and other business practices, industrial espionage, intellectual property crimes, and the misappropriation and unauthorised use of personal information. The book poses and attempts to answer some pressing questions to do with national sovereignty and enforceability of laws.
