YASCCL (Yet Another Stupid Computer Crime Law)
Over the years I have seen numerous attempts at addressing the serious problems in computer crime with new laws. Well-intentioned, I know, but all too many of these attempts are flawed. The latest is from Nova Scotia:
“The definition of cyberbullying, in this particular bill, includes “any electronic communication” that ”ought reasonably be expected” to “humiliate” another person, or harm their “emotional well-being, self-esteem or reputation.””
Well, all I can say is that everyone in this forum better be really careful what they say about anybody else.
(Oh, $#!+. Did I just impugn the reputation of the Nova Scotia legislature?)
