Cybercrime and the EU

The COuncil of Europe created the Convention of Cybercrime. Time for the EU, despite the drawback about the treaty of Lisbon, to look at cybercrime a bit more seriously than it has done so up to now.
A study is expected: http://www.crime-research.org/news/02.05.2008/3344/ (2 May 2008)

and the Commission recently took a Framework Decision about cyber attacks in order to clarify legal issues to facilitate responses to crime http://eur-lex.europa.eu/LexUriServ/LexUriServ.do?uri=COM:2008:0448:FIN:EN:PDF (14 July 2008)
