In the modern age, crime is not limited to the streets. An increasing percent of criminal offenses are now being committed via the internet. Crimes such as hacking or illegal downloading are commonly pursued by both criminal prosecutors and civil plaintiffs.
The problem is that due to the complex nature of web based transactions it is hard to find out who is really responsible for the illegal activity. Hackers have been known to use the computers and networks of innocent parties to carry out a crime. The end result is that an innocent party may be charged with a crime without even having knowledge of its occurrence.
