Cyberactivism, also known as Internet activism, is the use of electronic communication technologies (www, e-mail, etc), to enable communications with large audiences, in an attempt to denounce and solve attacks to the Human Rights.
Being able to join thousands of people together for a cause was way more difficult before than it is now. What has made this change? Internet, of course.
An example is what happened with the so called "Anonymous" cyberactivists, in the USA, who planned and convinced thousands of citizens through social networks and forums. What they did is that they blocked the web pages of organizations such as MPAA or RIAA (USA), which supported anti-piracy lobbies.
This attacks have lead to a lot of debate and critics. Moreover, two points of view have been distinguished: there are people who consider this attacks as vandalism, crime and delinquence, while others support the idea that they're just ways of protest and claim
So, should this cyberactivism actions be consider as many other demands or demonstrations, or are they definetly criminal actions (whichever way we look at it)?
