G-8 OFFICIALS CONSIDER TREATY FOR CYBERCRIME LAWS
Crime on the Internet is flourishing in part because several
countries, including Belgium and Spain, have weak laws addressing
online crime, according to legal experts at the Group of Eight
conference on cybercrime, held in Paris this week.  U.K. and U.S.
law enforcement groups are also hamstrung by laws that allow
cybercriminals to escape detection and capture.  The Council of
Europe has proposed a treaty to combat cybercrime.  The treaty
includes language that could require ISPs to preserve consumer
data for upwards of 40 days, a concept that many industry groups
find upsetting.  The data requirement, and others called for by
the treaty, "run contrary to legal protections and would result
in the stifling of Internet growth," said the Internet Alliance,
a prominent industry group. (Wall Street Journal Interactive Edition, 17 May
