With the industrial revolution emerging in the 18th century, the various activities of mankind have taken a higher step. There have been remarkable mind blowing inventions since then pertaining in the society. However, while this intelligent man has been an asset to the society by creating and producing new inventions to the world there have also been adverse negative effects. For example, the level of crimes and criminal activities have also taken a different dimension and there has been an increase in number of crimes. New crimes with the emergence of technology and the internet are called cybercrimes.
The Crimes that take place by tampering an individual’s or an organizations information are called as hacking. Every person has his or her personal identity. At present there are also criminal activities occurring by stealing their identity. However, trademarks, copyright, patents right, Industrial design rights and even at times trade secrets are all rights that come under Intellectual rights of an individual. There are also crimes relating to fraud of land and property. This is where certain people pretending to have the authority over a certain property falsely sells it to the innocent victim. The Victim would get no right over the land as it at times may be sold to many other parties where then a litigation would commence in the courts for years. Another instance would be selling of Government property as private lands.
What is the solution for these crimes?
There is no such thing called a solution for the ever growing large number of crimes that increases day by day. However, what one can do is be vigilant about the things happening in the society. Look at the wider view and not the over view that the society shows you. However, the law of the country always wishes to grant the best for the innocent victim. Therefore, the effected victim can always depend on the law. For example,litigation support who primarily deals with quantifying economic damages and Tribunal courts who listens to both parties involved and would try to ensure that a fair trial is carried out.
Criminals always think one step ahead of the victim. This is because their intentions are clearly to deceive the innocent victim. Therefore, most of the time litigations which comes to the courts or in front of the Tribunals end up being victorious toward the wrong party. At times the courts would instruct the parties to get the assistance of a Fraud Investigation authority. These investigators would try their best to find all information regarding the disputed matter and then give a report to the courts, by which then the judges could give a fair judgment.
The end result of a crime can vary according to the graveness of the crime. It could cause property damages, damages to one’s name or at times may even be the cause of the death of a person.
