    Abstract

    Thisreportis a response to rising national and international concern which has arisen about risks and potential harms of cyberbullying and sexting and the inadequacy of existing laws to deal with these behaviours.State and Commonwealth laws have not kept up with technological advances and the ways in which young people now operate and socialise online, leading to the possibility that some behaviours, such as sexting, can now result in young people being criminalised under legislation not originally designed for this behaviour.
