Abstract

Abstract This article explores the substantive criminal law provisions of the (Draft) Council of Europe Convention on Cyber-crime. The authors argue that while the draft Convention has succeeded in protecting economic interests, it has done so partly at the expense of individual rights and dignity. Suggestions are made as to how the draft Convention might be improved.
