1.1 What is Cyber Law?
In order to arrive at an acceptable definition of the term Cyber Law, we must first understand the meaning of the term law.
Simply put, law encompasses the rules of conduct:
(1) that have been approved by the government, and
(2) which are in force over a certain territory, and
(3) which must be obeyed by all persons on that territory.
Violation of these rules will lead to government action such as imprisonment or fine or an order to pay compensation.
