With new technology comes new opportunities for criminal conduct and the internet exception. In fact because of the nature of the internet some crimes like sex crimes are more likely to initiate on the internet because the perpetrators feel they can better hide their identity. Although we all may feel a greater sense of anonymity on the internet its not really a true characterization of reality. While we may be able to hide or identity from other lay people on the internet by not sharing our real names, addresses, or photos of ourselves, in the long run law enforcement has technology to track those committing crimes online and provide the evidence to convict them.
