The Jordanian government has recently approved a new and stringent cyber crime law. Jordan’s “Information Systems Crime Law of 2010” contains 18 articles dealing with a broad spectrum of cyber crime.
Articles in the law have defined acts of cyber crime across the whole continuum, dealing with minor offenses such as unauthorized access to computer material, to more serious crimes such as identity and credit card fraud.
The Jordanian government has recently introduced a new Public Prosecution Law (Law no. 11 of 2010). According to the provisions of this Law, crimes committed in breach of Trademark Law no. 33 of 1952 and Copyright Law no. 22 of 1992 will be referred to a Central Public Prosecutor.
