Issues in Cyberspace: From Privacy to Piracy


The technological phenomenon known as the Internet has revolutionized the way people work, play, consume, socialize -- essentially the way humans interact in general. Along with unparalleled access to information and such cultural juggernauts as Facebook and YouTube, this technology also has given rise to cybercrime, malware, and a host of other issues as well. This comprehensive volume examines the beginnings of the Internet, the development of the various content and services within cyberspace, and the potential risks of operating within an increasingly interconnected world.
