Research and development efforts are constantly producing new computer-related technologies and applications. These new developments are continuing to change the way we work, play and interact with other people. Given the scope of issues that affect IT practices, students may choose to discuss any computer crime/cyberlaw element, including cultural, political, legal, technological and competitive issues that can potentially affect people and the legal system. The report should illustrate current cases and/or practices related to the course material. Each student must relate their topic to information obtained from the course materials and lectures. Your research must have happened in the past 6 months (current).
Give a short description of what the article is about and how it relates to the course material (A minimum of 1-full page). Your submission should include your own thoughts about the article.
