Cyber Laws – Blogs

Misum HossainWith technology and its various tools evolving rather quickly coupled with the exponential growth of Broadband usage in India, the need for cyber laws and awareness is increasing tremendously in almost every industry sector of the country. As someone who is deeply interested in the various facets of this hitherto underrated area of law, I hope I can provide some important and enlightening reading material for students, fellow professionals, corporate entities, government departments, law enforcement agencies and anyone who wishes to know about the rapidly transforming face of the Indian cyberspace. The posts included are specifically to create more awareness and raise the levels of understanding, however I do expect and hope the readers will respect my copyright and ensure that any further usage of the material (published here) is done with my express permission.

Email Virus ratio highest in India

Email viruses are increasing alarmingly in India. According to Messagelabs Intelligence Reports, global ratio of email-borne viruses in email traffic seem to be getting less intense as compared to the statistics available since 2005.  The February 2009 global ratio indicates that 1 in 304.9 emails (0.33%) are spam mails which is roughly a decrease of 0.06% since January 2009 and if compared to the 2005 stats the situation seems much better as the global ratio then was at an alarming rate of 1 in 12.9 emails being spam mails. However the news is not all that good for Indian cyber users considering the results of the virus rate charts for worst affected geographical locations published by Messagelabs Report for February 2009. Virus activity in India reportedly has arisen by 0.16% amounting to 1 in 197.4 emails thus catapulting India to the No. 1 position for most virus activity in the world for the month of February 2009.

Cyber Civil Liabilities in Eastern India

It has been almost eight and a half years since the inception of  the Indian cyber laws in the form of “The Information Technology Act, 2000″ but the implementation or use of the statute’s provisions related to cyber civil liabilities seems to have never even been considered significant enough whether by individual clients or even corporate entities in the eastern part of India (specifically Kolkata). Ordinary civil courts are barred from having any jurisdiction in matters pertaining to The IT Act thereby making the roles of the Adjudicating Officer as well as the Cyber Tribunal (Delhi) much more emphatic. However unfortunately, the city of Kolkata has hardly seen any matters reaching the Adjudicating Officer.
