Mr. Kanakaraj plans to research the problems of constructing efficient rules for regulating the internet. One of the major problems facing internet regulation is optimal deterrent. While the benefits of illegal activities on the internet, or cyber crimes are private, the possible consequences of such crimes are enormous and public. Several characteristics of the internet create roadblocks to monitoring, analyzing and deterring cyber crimes. Anonymity and multiple victims are two such major issues. Mr. Kanakaraj's research will further explore the complexity of creating effective cyber crime legislation given these impediments. As the internet becomes an ever more important international tool, efficient rules will have far reaching effects.
