March 07 2003 ~ BrazilI Much-nee e Ic o E" to appro aI Bill 84/99, which sets out provisions on cybercrime, is awaiting the approval of the plenary session of the House of Representatives before being submitted to the Senate. When it does become law, its provisions will be incorporated into the Brazilian Criminal Code, providing welcome regulation in this area. Criminal conduct must be codified in Brazilian law before it can be considered a crime. So far, the lack of c1arification in this area has made it almost impossible to impose criminal sanctions on the perpetrators of cybercrime. Thus, the bill provides comprehensive definitions for the following criminal offences, when they take place through electronic means: • hacking; • misuse of personal information; • manufacture or distribution of child pornography; and • duplication of mobile telephone SIM (subscriber identity module) cards, or credit or debit cards.
