Cybercrime. Critical issues and legal regulations in the EU and in a transnational scenario

This paper is the result of the research that I have had the opportunity to carry out during the past year in Mainz (Germany). Indeed, thanks to the libraries of both Johannes Gutenberg University and Max Planck Institute for Comparative Public Law and International Law (situated in Heidelberg, Germany), I have had the chance to study several books and review articles about cybercrime and cyber security.
I am going to analyze, in three chapters, the whole phenomenon of Cybercrime from different points of view. The first chapter will be about the social impact, the economic structure, and the socio-political and cognitive feedback. The sec-ond chapter will concern the legal standpoint: in fact, I am going to examine the International regulation and the EU provisions existing so far. To finish, in the third chapter, I am going to focus on a deep and critical survey of the US Com-puter Fraud and Abuse Act, suggesting the unsuitableness of it (confirmed by the Aaron Swartz Case).
I chose this topic because Cybercrime in an incredibly present matter that in-volves everyone of us more and more each day. The lack of an adequate level of harmonization between the substantial legislations of some States, together with the huge gaps concerning the procedural law of some others, makes this issue unquestionably current and fascinating at the same time.
I hope this paper makes for an enjoyable read.

2 ABSTRACT This paper is the result of the research that I have had the opportunity to carry out during the past year in Mainz (Germany). Indeed, thanks to the libraries of both Johannes Gutenberg University and Max Planck Institute for Comparative Public Law and International Law (situated in Heidelberg, Germany), I have had the chance to study several books and review articles about cybercrime and cyber se- curity. I am going to analyze, in three chapters, the whole phenomenon of Cybercrime from different points of view. The first chapter will be about the social impact, the economic structure, and the socio-political and cognitive feedback. The se- cond chapter will concern the legal standpoint: in fact, I am going to examine the International regulation and the EU provisions existing so far. To finish, in the third chapter, I am going to focus on a deep and critical survey of the US Com- puter Fraud and Abuse Act, suggesting the unsuitableness of it (confirmed by the Aaron Swartz Case). I chose this topic because Cybercrime in an incredibly present matter that in- volves everyone of us more and more each day. The lack of an adequate level of harmonization between the substantial legislations of some States, together with the huge gaps concerning the procedural law of some others, makes this issue unquestionably current and fascinating at the same time. I hope this paper makes for an enjoyable read.
