Abstract

This Article is intended to help people in Michigan -- from homeowners and renters to students and visitors -- who all are at risk of being a victim, a criminal, or both. By applying Michigan law to realistic hypotheticals, this Article will explore how teens, young adults, and others are getting into trouble, both as victims and as criminal perpetrators. This information is fundamentally important to making well-informed decisions about how to use the Internet and high-tech devices. Hopefully greater awareness will lead to more responsible usage of the incredible technology available today.

Keywords: Michigan, Internet, high-tech device, sexual predators, child pornography, sexting, stalking, cyberbullying, identity theft, video voyeurism, eavesdropping, hacking
