“When a crime scene is in cyberspace, forget the yellow tape. Boundaries, along with evidence and procedure, need to be re-envisioned. Or, as Daniel E. Geer Jr. puts it: ‘Digital law is and must be counterintuitive’ because our intuitions about the physical world can be misleading when applied to the digital realm. Mr. Geer’s essay on the ‘physics of digital law’ is a fitting start to Cybercrime: Digital Cops in a Networked Environment, a collection of writings assembled by the Information Society Project, at Yale Law School.”
-The Chronicle of Higher Education
“A timely and important collection of materials from highly qualified authors. Cybercrime will provide a wealth of new insights both for general readers and for those who study and teach about the legal and policy implications of the internet.”
-David Johnson,Visiting Professor of Law, New York Law School
“Cybercrime is written by the leading academic experts and government officials who team together to present a state-of-the-art vision for how to detect and prevent digital crime, creating the blueprint for how to police the dangerous back alleys of the global Internet.”
-Peter P. Swire,C. William O'Neill Professor of Law, the Ohio State University, and former Chief Counselor for Priva
“The collection provides an interesting and insightful exploration of the digital environment in which cybercrimes take place and the conditions that affect their regulation. . . . A book that criminologists should read because there is much to be learned from it. . . . A good scholarly piece of work by heavyweight contributors who both individually and collectively make substantial contributions to the cybercrime debate.”
