Research has demonstrated that Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) can be used to bully and harass children on‐line. Cyber‐bullying and harassment can be deeply traumatic to the victim and can cause psychological harm. This article assesses possible legal solutions to this problem. The emphasis is on the criminal law, the more normal solution to the infliction of harm and distress to an individual. However, the article also examines whether the civil law provides assistance in this sphere.
