This Article is a first attempt to study cyberspace governance and computer crime control in Hong Kong. It begins with a discussion of how computer crime was "discovered" as a cognizable object of control. Next, it explores the nature, prevalence and distribution of computer crime in Hong Kong before embarking on a comprehensive review and critical analysis of the Hong Kong government's cyberspace governance philosophy and computer crime control policy. The Article closes with a number of recommendations for improving Hong Kong cyberspace governance, which focus on developing a broad, overarching policy that both meets the public's goals and addresses private sector concerns.
