Hi, could you give me any Internet addresses where I can find out more about the IT crime rates(hacking,software piracy etc.)as well as IT Laws and Legislation in Finland?
Statistics Finland has StatFin-online service http://statfin.stat.fi/Statweb/index_ENG.stm if you clic the WebSelector the statistics for criminality can be found. Unfortunally IT crimes are on the category other offences whitch consist of several other crimes. IT crime rates that is rates for other offences can be found at the Library of Statistics.

Finlex http://www.finlex.fi/english/index.html is a Finnish legislation with a list of changes, but only part of it is in english. The most up to date version of Finnish legislation is easier to read as a book.
EUR-Lex The portal to European Union law can be found in english http://europa.eu.int/eur-lex/en/index.html
Information technology Laws and Legislation consist of several subcategor, for example copyright crimes. I recommend that with IT Laws and Legislation questions you contact Library of Parliament in finish that is Eduskunnan kirjasto.
