MARCH 10'Spurred by the rapid growth of Internet-related crimes, the Justice Department today launched an informational Web site, www.cybercrime.gov.

The site, created by the Criminal Division's Computer Crime and Intellectual Property Section, will post information about computer intrusions, intellectual property, privacy, counterfeiting, electronic commerce legal issues, computer search and seizure laws, encryption and international matters.

"There is a growing interest in cybercrime from a variety of perspectives, ranging from children, parents and teachers to lawyers, law enforcement and the media," said James K. Robinson, assistant attorney general for the Criminal Division. "This new Web site allows the public to easily access a wide range of information about the department's efforts to attack computer crime."

CCIPS constructed the site in conjunction with Logicon Systems Inc. of Herndon, Va.
