Abstract

This paper suggests the international community must decide whether to let all nations exercise “Global Jurisdiction” without any limitation to the exterritorial reach/range of national jurisdiction OR still want to be divided into sovereign states in relation to Cyberspace.

Before this vital jurisdictional question is solved, no real cybercrime convention can be drafted. The paper and two small appendix papers on Minors and Extradition was presented and “published on a USB Memory sticks” to participants at the Twelfth United Nation Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice Congress (CPCJC), in Salvador-Bahia, Brazil, 12-19 April 2010.

Keywords: Cyberspace, Internet, Jurisdiction, Sovereign States
