E-Commerce Times

Several high-profile criminal cases involving technology reached their conclusions in 2012. They include the conviction of several executives of an e-waste recycling company that sent waste to China rather than processing it in the U.S. as they had claimed. Also, a federal court convicted a man of breaking into AT&T’s servers to steal information about its users.

Users of the Internet and electronic gear are vulnerable to criminals near and far, but we don’t always hear about what happens at court and whether the alleged criminals are convicted or acquitted.

Here is an update on some those crimes for consideration.

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.


AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
