Although the term cybercrime is usually restricted to describing criminal activity in which the computer or network is an essential part of the crime, this term is also used to include traditional crimes in which computers or networks are used to enable the illicit activity.

Cyber crimes can generally be defined as crimes linked to illegal usage of computer or its accessories or computer data. The IT Act 2000 and the Indian Copyright act 1956(wih 1994 amendments) are supposed to be benchmarks for defining a cyber crime and its legal implications. But, because of the complexity of the ICT, it is very difficult to be very specific in a number of cases.

Any use of a computer as an instrument to further illegal ends, such as committing fraud, trafficking in child pornography and intellectual property, stealing identities, or violating privacy.

The international nature of cybercrimes has led to international cyberlaws.
