World Wide Web and Environmental Crime


It has been reported (http://www.theguardian.com/environment/2015/mar/03/chinas-illegal-ivory-traders-exploiting-online-market) that the world wide web plays an increasingly important part in the sale of illegal products (e.g. ivory, tiger bone, rhinoceros horn and turtle shells) taken from endangered species. Apparently, more than half these 'advertisements' relate to ivory.
