From now until October 2, the United States will have to decide whether it wants to be the first country in the world to enact a national law that makes it a crime to post personal information online without the consent of the person receiving it.
As part of that effort, President-elect Donald Trump is scheduled to sign an executive order that will expand the definition of cyberbullies to include any individual who engages in an activity that involves a “cyberbullying” attack, or any “online activity that constitutes an attempt to influence or intimidate another person, or to influence, intimidate, or harass another person online.”
This is the first time the United Kingdom has done so.
The idea behind the law is that cyberbullied victims can file a complaint and, in the process, get the police to investigate and punish the cyberbulliest of them.
If you’re the one who was the victim of a cyberbullie, you can go through the same process.
But this isn’t going to work.
First, there’s the issue of anonymity.
Cyberbullies can’t know if someone else is reading their messages, and if someone has access to your email or online banking accounts, they can also use those to track you down.
Second, the act of “cybersleeping” can be a real problem for victims.
Cyber-bullies often don’t know what they’re doing is illegal.
They can post anonymous messages, or use malware to send spam, which means that they’re not necessarily hiding their identities, but they’re hiding information that could give someone else the wrong idea about who they are and what they do.
And they’re often not legally responsible for what they post, even if they’re aware of it.
So cyber-bullying victims aren’t going get the same protection they get from other types of online harassment, like stalking.
And while they have the right to privacy, cyber-bully victims also have the power to report cyberbulliers to the police.
But it’s a delicate balancing act.
Cybercrime is not a crime, and the right of privacy isn’t something that a law enforcement agency can police.
And the law enforcement effort is still in its early stages, with the FBI’s Cyber Crime Unit, Homeland Security, the Department of Justice, and various state and local law enforcement agencies involved.
But as long as these new measures don’t come into effect and don’t have the support of Congress, the next time someone gets a cyber-attacker’s identity, the law will likely protect them.
And it will protect us from a lot of cyberattacks.
