Towards an Integrative Approach
Edited by Harmen Van der Wilt and Christophe Paulussen
Chapter 7: Cybercrime and its sovereign spaces: an international law perspective
The position of this chapter is that unlike other tangible areas, such as the seas or airspace, cyberspace, although very much a sphere of activity is not a space in the physical sense and is not, therefore, subject to the international law of boundaries. This observation is crucial for law enforcement purposes because the prosecution of cybercrimes in cyberspace does not engage the concept of jurisdiction from the perspective of territoriality, although states are, of course, free to consider cybercrime from an artificial cross-border, boundary-related or similar perspective.
