Some Illegal Things That We Regularly Do On The Internet
The world is filled with smart things now. Literally anyone and everyone has an easy access of technology today. Kids who aren't even teenagers are on Facebook. This is illegal. No one under the age of 13 is allowed to use Facebook.
#9 faking IP address
In order to protect our surfing contents, people tend to do this. Though protecting or masking the IP address is not prohibited and there is no law against it, but changing or falsely entering the same could make you pay a huge amount of penalty or land you in jail.
#8 Cyber Bullying
This is one of the worst outcomes of Internet. Probably the biggest disadvantage ever. According to Title 18, Section 875, Subsection C of the United States Penal Code "Whoever transmits in interstate or foreign commerce any communication containing any threat to kidnap any person or any threat to injure the person of another, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than five years, or both.” Therefore, better bite your tongue as soon as you think of making threats in public forum.
#7 Sharing subscription passwords.
Yes, Sharing subscription passwords is a crime. Sharing the passwords could bring the sirens of police vans at your doorstep and in no time you could be repenting your act of smartness.
#6 Being an active user of ebay without declaring the income
Surprised han? Selling on or two items is an ignorable case but if you do selling or reselling on a regular basis, you are liable to pay the income tax, failing at which you may find the IRS banging on your door, like it's, you know, their job. So take care of this.
#5 Blocking advertisements
Believe it or no but Blocking advertisements online is illegal. While the company pays a huge amount to get their ads displayed on the most famous website pages, you just hit ‘SKIP’ and move ahead to the free stuff without being aware that you just did an illegal act by blocking something that popped up at the push of a pretty huge amount of money.
#4 Infringement of trademarked domains
This is a basic knowledge. You cannot copy someone else's name. Think beforehand of how you are going to defend yourself in the court if you are planning of registering your company with a trademarked domain. The company with a trademarked domain has a right to sue in the court if their domain is infringed.
#3 Downloading copyrighted images or GIFs
Yes, no matter how appealing the gif is, you cannot download it if it is copyrighted. Not all the images trending on famous stock photography websites are legally available for downloading. In fact, many of those images are originally copyrighted images which are illegally available for downloading on these websites.
#2 Using unsecured WiFi Networks
Yes, doing this can lead you into a trouble. Under the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, doing this could be considered as theft. So look over your shoulder the next time you hop on Starbucks' free WiFi Network across the street.
#1 Recording Skype Conversations
And another surprise here. Do you know that recording any part of the conversation without prior information to the second person is highly objectionable and wrong? Sharing these recorded videos through any medium and to anyone is even bigger of a crime. So mind you, go through the laws and terms once, and think twice before you press ‘RECORD’ in middle of any conversation.
