There have been three stages of Internet use: the happy days of e-commerce and optimistic sharing in military and academic circles; the growing awareness of Cybercrime issues to be addressed by law; and recent concerns about cyber attacks and national security issues and the paucity of national and international legal means to address them. This and the following two chapters analyze actual incidents and the applicability and inapplicability of law and policy; attempts to define terms that are thrown about in the media and by legislatures; such conundrums as attribution and anonymity, the lack of precedents and metaphors to guide legislators and policy makers; privacy and civil liberties issues; proposed legal and policy measures at national and international levels.
