Protection from Harassment Act 1997

The Protection from Harassment Act has separate sections for [England
and
Wales] and Scotland. It prohibits a course of conduct which amounts to
harassment of another and which --

"(a) is intended to amount to harassment of that person; or (b) occurs
in
circumstances where it would appear to a reasonable person that it
would
amount to harassment of that person."

As defined in the act, "harassment" would include alarming the person
or
causing the person distress.

You can find the full text of this law online, but it might be more
helpful to
read Barrister Addison's edited version, as he incorporates s7(3A)
added to
the Act by s44 Criminal Justice and Police Act 2001.



Malicious Communications Act 1998

The Malicious Communications Act 1998, as amended by Section 43
Criminal
Justice and Police Act 2001 states:

(1) Any person who sends to another person

(a) a letter, electronic communication or article of any description
which
conveys

(i) a message which is indecent or grossly offensive

(ii) a threat or

(iii) information which is false and known or believed to be false by
the
sender or

(b) any article or electronic communication which is, in whole or part,
of an
indecent or grossly offensive nature,

is guilty of an offence if his purpose, or one of his purposes, in
sending it
is that it should, so far as falling within paragraph (a) or (b) above,
cause
distress or anxiety to the recipient or to any other person to whom he
intends that it or its contents or nature should be communicated.

The trolls or Spammers get out on this is that the harassment is " (1) Any
person who sends to another person" the postings here are not aimed at a
particular person their intent is purely disruptive.

This applies only to harassement of someone in the UK by someone in the UK,
however harrasment is against the Acceptable use policies of most ISPs
worldwide.

You should collect *several* examples of harassement mentioning *yourself*
as an individual. **always save the header of all such posts and/or
emails**. If the harasser is in the UK the Police may be informed,
together with the ISP (lart)[email protected]??????.

If the harasser is outside the UK the harasser's ISP should be informed
(lart).

If the harrrassment is via an anonymising site, inform [email protected]????? who may
be able to help.

All these can be difficult because harassers regularly disguise thier
identities and ISPs. In these cases you should learn to read headers.
