Cyberspace has been a large fundamental in our everyday lives. Cyberspace is a term founded by William Gibson, a science fiction writer that defines cyberspace a electronic medium of computer networks, in which online communications take place.

You might have to persuade a judge to issue a search warrant on the basis of one possibility that the suspect is using cyberspace as a form of a crime or terrorist act.

Legislation in different states or countries maybe in direct conflict or diverge from the intent of different laws or constitutional rights if an act that was committed is illegal across jurisdictions you might find that no one wants to prosecute because of the geographic nightmare involved in doing so.
