Abstract

The numbers of internet users are growing rapidly. A recent innovation is the creation of virtual worlds which promise an entire social life in cyberspace. During last decades information technology is considered as a major threat to privacy, because it makes prerequisite of pervasive surveillance, large databases, and lightning-speed distribution of information across the world. There are continual limitings of privacy and personal data abuse, made by Internet services providers. After the attacks of terrorist of September 11, 2001 in New York, communities around the world revalued existing rules and methods of dealing with information. The limiting of privacy is settled by law enforcement and by governments. The main question arise: does the privacy in its classical meaning match to the actual state of things?
