Cyber crime, as a devastating and easiest way of crime, has an adverse impact on the individual and society in at large. And with its wide variety it has appeared as a Frankenstein in front of us.

The Corruption Of Our Major Political Parties In The US

Mon, 01 Aug 2016 06:59:01 -0500

Why is it that every time we look at Washington DC we see questionable activities borderlining on corruption or outright illegality? Perhaps this is one thing that both sides of the aisle agree on - they seem to agree this is acceptable, it's not. Let's take these recent issues with email scandals. We have the DNC being hacked by a Romanian Hacker and Hillary Clinton's illegal private email server with official State Department correspondence on it, some of it Top Secret but all of it, none of anyone else's business especially foreign entities and spies.

Help! A Pokemon Is Trespassing On My Lawn

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 08:23:58 -0500

Millions of people all over the globe are spending every spare moment out hunting Pokemon. The new 'Pokemon Go' app was downloaded more than 15 million times in the first 6 days after its launch in Australia, Japan and the United States. Pokemon was originally created as a video game for Nintendo's hand-held Game Boy device. Gross revenues for the franchise have exceeded $46 billion. The latest edition was released on 6 July 2016. Soon, personal 'Pokemon Go Plus' wearable devices will alert Pokemon trainers to the presence of a Pokemon nearby, and enable them to hunt it down without touching their phones. The early popularity of Pokemon Go shows that augmented reality might be an enriching revolution on our doorstep. However, we don't want enrichment foisted onto us, we just want it when we need it or choose it, like a friend who is there for us when we want to play, or share experiences, and sometimes when we want to pour our hearts out to a good listener. Some lawyers are suggesting that if you go onto people's property and take 'their' Pokemon, it may be theft.

Username Squatting and Online Impersonation: How to Stop and Avoid

Mon, 21 Mar 2016 07:17:26 -0500

Impersonation and username squatting have increasingly become a common problem for companies today. As companies strive to maintain an online presence, they often become vulnerable to unwanted online behavior like impersonation and username squatting. Impersonation generally refers to the improper use of a username on social media platforms with the intent to mislead others into believing that the account belongs to another (e.g., user registers an account under a celebrity name and proceeds to post updates as if they were that celebrity). In contrast, username squatting typically involves the preemptive registration of a specific username or account, with no genuine intention to use that account, followed by attempts to sell the username back to the affected/named party at an inflated price. Username squatting and online impersonation are sometimes also referred to as brand squatting, Twitter squatting, social media squatting, and brand infringement.

Domain Theft: How to Prevent Domain Name Hijacking and What to Do About It

Mon, 21 Mar 2016 07:16:26 -0500

Domain theft, also known as domain hijacking, is the practice of changing a domain name's registration without the permission of the domain's original registrant. While many may assume that domain hijacking is accomplished through nefarious methods, domain hijackers most commonly acquire a domain owner's personal information in order to persuade the domain registrar to transfer the domain to the hijacker. Because there are currently no specific international or federal laws that explicitly criminalize domain theft, recovering hijacked domains can often be difficult, time-consuming, and expensive. Safeguarding credentials for the domain registration account, in particular maintaining secure passwords that are changed periodically, is one of the best steps to avoid domain theft.

Physician Communications: Considerations for Using Text Messages and Social Media

Tue, 14 Jul 2015 08:43:48 -0500

It is becoming easier and easier for physicians to communicate with each other and their patients. And although open communication is generally thought of as positive, the medical profession should proceed with caution. Patients and consulting physicians rely heavily on their communications with their treating physicians. Thus, communications which do not require the thought of focus that a physician would otherwise give to a situation may result in disaster. While there are many potential ways a physician might use text messaging and social media both professionally and personally, we will focus generally on physician interactions with other physicians, and physician interactions with patients.

100 Year Old Defamation Law Gets 21st Century Make Over by a New Breed of Defamation Lawyers

These skills are not written (yet) into text-books and neither are they taught on legal courses. Knowing your law well is one thing, but understanding the magic that makes pages appear on or disappear off the internet is a completely different matter so it is not surprising at all that some traditional defamation lawyers are finding it a bit difficult to adapt and participate in this new arena.
