The Computer Misuse Act is designed to protect computer users against willful attacks and theft of information. Offences under the act include hacking, unauthorized access to computer systems and purposefully spreading malicious and damaging software (malware), such as viruses. The act makes it an offence to access or even attempt to access a computer system without the appropriate authorization. Therefore, even if a hacker tries to get into a system but is unsuccessful they can be prosecuted using this law.

Privacy and privacy protection

Data protection is a type of privacy protection manifesting in special legal regulation. Data protection right ensures a person the right of disposal over all data in connection with his personality. This way it serves to sustain the protection of privacy in a world where the possibility of collecting, storing and conciliation of large pools of data is widely available. Earlier, due to the lack of highly developed data-processing technologies no threat was imposed by a situation in which these data became public and known to others, while today processing, conciliation and association of data or creating new data relying on the old ones might result in the infringement to the right of privacy. The underlying notion behind the codification of data protection law is the insufficiency of secrecy protection: within the new context protection should apply to all data: “data protection should be differentiated from the interpretation of privacy as intimacy.

To me, music by itself is another world because it so penetrates to the most intricate parts of my being- to my spirit, lifting me from here to a place that is indescribable in words but so familiar to the feelings and emotions. I think of music as a vehicle; every time I board it takes me to a place I have never been. The kind of music I describe comes with a kind of joy that is so divine and cosmic-out of this world. It makes one forget about the sorrows of this world and puts you into a place of perfect peace where you heart is full of mirth.
