Sometimes I’m asked about legal issues related to technology. There can be many struggles with technology, social media, and crime. An example involves the app Kik. Kik is a Canadian-based messaging app that can be popular with youth. If someone is grooming a youth in Pennsylvania using the Kik app, Pennsylvania law enforcement has to contact Kik and the Canadian law enforcement to deal with the issue. Then, if the perpetrator is in Australia, there are more legal loops to go through to resolve the situation. This is a simple example that I wanted to share to show that it’s often very difficult to navigate online threats towards our children. You can read a little more about Kik on this page.
I want to provide a resource for those needing guidance with legal issues related to technology. Here are a few of the few of the best thoughts from my friends in the legal/law enforcement world.
Hopefully you are able to find the right resource for your technology-related legal questions below. If you still have questions, contact some of the folks in the resources I have shared. They should be able to direct you in the right direction.
