The crypto controversy : a key conflict in the Information Society by Bert-Jaap Koops( Book )

19 editions published between 1998 and 2001 in English and held by 252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Cryptography is essential for information security and electronic commerce, yet it can also be abused by criminals to thwart police wiretaps and computer searches. How should governments address this conflict of interests? Will they require people to deposit crypto keys with a 'trusted' agent? Will governments outlaw cryptography that does not provide for law-enforcement access? Can the police require suspects to hand over keys thus infringing the privilege against self-incrimination? Or should law enforcement forget about wiretapping and computer searches altogether?"--BOOK JACKET. "Bert-Jaap Koops, who studied mathematics and literature, worked at the law faculty of Tilburg University and the mathematics department of Eindhoven University of Technology. The author of the Crypto Law Survey website discusses possible ways to address the crypto controversy, analyzes the arguments pro and con domestic regulation of cryptography, and puts these into perspective. Koops proposes a method to balance the conflicting interests and applies this to the Dutch situation, explaining both technical and legal issues for anyone interested in the subject."--Jacket
Emerging electronic highways : new challenges for politics and law( Book )

6 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 239 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Electronic highways are emerging, the information society is in the making. Who is building the infrastructure, and whose interests are to be taken into account in establishing the electronic superhighway? How will it affect democracy, political debate, and public administration? What applications can we expect, and what changes should be made in European law in reaction to new technological developments, like interactive multimedia or the globalization of the telecommunications infrastructure? We can look forward to consumer-oriented electronic services, but can we retain our privacy in such open surroundings? How will the allure of electronic commerce alter present regulations in such diverse areas as cryptography policy, civil liability, and tax levying? This book sets out important administrative and legal implications for political scientists, lawyers, as well as other professionals working on electronic highways

Cybercrime and jurisdiction : a global survey( Book )

9 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 220 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Combating cybercrime requires law-enforcement expertise, manpower, legislation, and policy priorities within the ambit of crime-fighting. Because of the utterly transnational character of cybercrime, countries must focus on international investigation and prosecution. As cultural and legal traditions play a major part in countries' views on the exercise of criminal law and sovereignty, a unified approach to this phenomenon requires serious reflection. This book intends to contribute to a more concerted international effort towards effectively fighting cybercrime by offering an in-depth survey of views and practices in various jurisdictions. It includes chapters on the Council of Europe's Cybercrime Convention and on international co-operation in criminal matters. Thirteen country reports, written by experts in the field, are included in alphabetical order. The book concludes by discussing one of the most urgent steps that needs to be taken: resolving positive jurisdictional conflicts when several jurisdictions seek to prosecute a cybercriminal at the same time
Surveillance, privacy and public space( )

12 editions published between 2018 and 2020 in English and held by 180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Privacy in public space : conceptual and regulatory challenges( Book )

13 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"With ongoing technological innovations such as mobile cameras, WiFi tracking, drones, and augmented reality, aspects of citizens' lives are becoming increasingly vulnerable to intrusion. This book brings together authors from a variety of disciplines (philosophy, law, political science, economics, and media studies) to examine privacy in public space from both legal and regulatory perspectives. The contributors explore the contemporary challenges to achieving privacy and anonymity in physical public space at a time when legal protection remains limited in comparison to 'private' space. To address this problem, the book...demonstrates why privacy in public space needs defending. Different ways of conceptualizing and shaping such protection are explored, for example through 'privacy bubbles', obfuscation and surveillance transparency, as well as by revising the assumptions underlying current privacy laws."--

Sweetie 2.0 : using artificial intelligence to fight webcam child sex tourism( )

12 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book centres on Webcam Child Sex Tourism and the Sweetie Project initiated by the children's rights organization Terre des Hommes in 2013 in response to the exponential increase of online child abuse. Webcam child sex tourism is a growing international problem, which not only encourages the abuse and sexual exploitation of children and provides easy access to child-abuse images, but which is also a crime involving a relatively low risk for offenders as live-streamed webcam performances leave few traces that law enforcement can use. Moreover, webcam child sex tourism often has a cross-border character, which leads to jurisdictional conflicts and makes it even harder to obtain evidence, launch investigations or prosecute suspects. Terre des Hommes set out to actively tackle webcam child sex tourism by employing a virtual 10-year old Philippine girl named Sweetie, a so-called chatbot, to identify offenders in chatrooms. Sweetie 1.0 could be deployed only if police officers participated in chats, and thus was limited in dealing with the large number of offenders. With this in mind, a more pro-active and preventive approach was adopted to tackle the issue. Sweetie 2.0 was developed with an automated chat function to track, identify and deter individuals using the internet to sexually abuse children. Using chatbots allows the monitoring of larger parts of the internet to locate and identify (potential) offenders, and to send them messages to warn of the legal consequences should they proceed further. But using artificial intelligence raises serious legal questions. For instance, is sexually interacting with a virtual child actually a criminal offence? How do rules of criminal procedure apply to Sweetie as investigative software? Does using Sweetie 2.0 constitute entrapment? This book, the outcome of a comparative law research initiative by Leiden University's Center for Law and Digital Technologies (eLaw) and the Tilburg Institute for Law, Technology, and Society (TILT), addresses the application of substantive criminal law and criminal procedure to Sweetie 2.0 within various jurisdictions around the world. This book is especially relevant for legislators and policy-makers, legal practitioners in criminal law, and all lawyers and academics interested in internet-related sexual offences and in Artificial Intelligence and law. Professor Simone van der Hof is General Director of Research at t he Center for Law and Digital Technologies (eLaw) of the Leiden Law School at Leiden University, The Netherlands. Ilina Georgieva, LL.M., is a PhD researcher at the Faculty of Governance and Global Affairs at Leiden University, Bart Schermer is an associate professor at the Center for Law and Digital Technologies (eLaw) of the Leiden Law School, and Professor Bert-Jaap Koops is Professor of Regulation and Technology at the Tilburg Institute for Law, Technology, and Society (TILT), Tilburg University, The Netherlands
Starting points for ICT regulation : deconstructing p[r]evalent policy one-liners( Book )

9 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 144 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"How does the 'on-line' world relate to the 'off-line' world? Is it different, separate, or even unique compared to the off-line world, or just a part thereof? And when do we need to regulate it, and how? These have become important, but complex questions for legislators, policy-makers, regulators, and politicians who design regulatory frameworks to address fast-moving technologies that change society in intricate ways. In the course of time, governments and international organizations have developed regulatory 'starting points', in order to consistently and effectively deal with ICT and Internet regulation. These offer policy one-liners such as 'what holds off-line, must hold on-line' and 'regulation should be technology-neutral'. This book questions these regulatory starting points in detail and systematically explores their application, meaning and value for international e-regulation. It digs deeper than existing literature in trying to find out in which cases the starting points merit attention, and how we should really use them." "This volume is the product of close collaboration and debate between scholars working at the Tilburg Institute for Law, Technology, and Society (TILT), to which international colleagues have added valuable reactions and reflections. The contributions in this volume have been written by TILT researchers Simone van der Hof, Bert-Jaap Koops, Miriam Lips, Sjaak Nouwt, Corien Prins, Maurice Schellekens, and Kees Stuurman, and by guest authors Dan Burk (University of Minnesota), Herbert Burkert (University of St. Gallen), and Yves Poullet (Facultes universitaires Notre-Dame de la Paix, Namur).

Profiling technologies in practice : applications and impact on fundamental rights and values( Book )

4 editions published between 2015 and 2017 in English and Dutch and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume presents the findings of some interesting research into profiling. The aim of the research has been to identify and tackle the challenges posed by profiling technologies to fundamental rights. The focus is on data protection, and the context is that of the European Union. This volume testifies to the increased awareness of the far-reaching implications of profiling, notably with regard to democracy and the rule of law. Profiling confronts traditional understandings of fundamental rights with a new environment that is progressively contingent on data-driven applications and infrastructures. Profiling nourishes the advance of smart grids, smart cars and traffic management, remote e-health, personalized advertising and search engines, as well as data-driven fraud detection, policing, criminal justice and foreign intelligence. --
Responsible innovation 1 : innovative solutions for global issues by Jeroen van den Hoven( Book )

8 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book addresses the methodological issues involved in responsible innovation and provides an overview of recent applications of multidisciplinary research. Responsible innovation involves research into the ethical and societal aspects of new technologies (e.g. ICT, nanotechnology, biotechnology and brain sciences) and of changes in technological systems (e.g. energy, transport, agriculture and water). This research is highly multidisciplinary. It involves close collaboration between researchers in such diverse fields as ethics, social science, law, economics, applied science, engineering - as well as innovative, design-oriented and policy-relevant. Although there is a trend to engage ethicists and social scientists early in technology development, most literature in the field of Technology Assessment or Ethics of Technology is still aimed at one discipline whereas this book incorporates different approaches and to discuss experiences, lessons and more general theoretical issues
