    The verdict Wednesday in the MySpace cyberbullying case raised a variety of questions about the terms that users agree to when they log on to Web sites. Is lying about one’s identity on the Internet now a crime? Whats your take?

      As pointed out by Uninvited Writer, this women did a whole lot more than just lie about her identity. Her actions would have been sickening if she had been a child, but this was a grown adult.

    There is no universal law in this respect. People of most of the countries have just started using net. Numbers are not many in many countries. Exceptions are US or few more countries.
    There may be an international convention on the matter.

    I don not this it should be a crime to give false details over the internet; as long as it is harmless it shouldn't matter.
