Annotated Criminal Code for Social Media Abuse

University of British Columbia law professor Benjamin Perrin has published an annotated Criminal Code that deals with Social Media Crime in Canada:

"This annotated Criminal Code aims to be a resource for scholars, judges, Crown prosecutors and defence counsel, police, and others interested in social media and criminal law. After the relevant Criminal Code provisions in bold, a brief description of the general law related to them appear, followed by a more detailed set of case summaries that describe the application of each provision in the social media context. These summaries are concise enough to identify potentially relevant judicial decisions quickly so that readers can then consult the full decisions. The following offences are covered in this annotated Criminal Code:
  • Participation in the activity in a terrorist group (s. 83.18)
  • Counselling the commission of an indictable offence for the benefit of, at the direction of or in association with a terrorist organization (ss. 2, 83.24-27, 464)
  • Public mischief (s. 140)
  • Sexual interference (s. 151)
  • Invitation to sexual touching (s. 152)
  • Sexual Exploitation (s. 153)
  • Voyeurism (s. 162)
  • Child pornography (s. 163.1)
  • Luring a child (s. 172.1)
  • Indecent acts (s. 173)
  • Criminal harassment (s. 264)
  • Uttering threats (s. 264.1)
  • Sexual assault (s. 265)
  • Inciting hatred (s. 319)
  • Unauthorized use of a computer (s. 342.1)
