I wonder if any security people have some tips for internet harassment 
for adults. Especially concerning ex-partners. I might be making a tip 
sheet and would like some resources to go by. I have some ideas but 
haven't written anything down yet. The people I am doing this for have 
done some searches on law enforcement pages and our own RCMP have at 
various times offered internet safety tips at their web site. I know 
the FBI also offer this. I wonder if any one has found anything 
specifically on this "partner assault and Internet safety tips"

I just found this site on goggle


rather than just point out resources does anyone do research in this 
area? I am trying to hook up with an National(Canada) Research council 
member who does Information security in terms of computer science and 
find some legal studies research project for graduate school that might 
show the implications of this hard security research in terms of its 
legal-social affects.

I was going to present a paper on the harms of hacking in Chicago but 
our panel did not get accepted. My paper is not all that great in terms 
of dealing with the question of the harms of hacking but you can read 
it for hacking cases anyways if you have time or inclination.

Computer crime: is hacking really that bad? An exploration of the cases 
and laws concerning unauthorised access to computers.

it is here. http://www3.sympatico.ca/ptimusk/LAWS4908.html
