Hacking on the plane: who has jurisdiction?

Hacking on the plane: who has jurisdiction?

Wow, that's an interesting question:

Let's say a Canadian flies from New York to Tokyo on Korean Air and hacks the German tourist's computer seated in front of her while over the Pacific. Who's laws apply? (Canada, US, Japan, Korea, Germany?)

I mean, we have a hard time answering this question if everybody is grounded but what about such a scenario?

This is an attempt to explain: Hacking on the plane: who has jurisdiction?


  • Hmm, that's really interesting. ^^

  • The Israeli's always have jurisdiction.

  • Nice topic :)

  • Seems that while in the air it would be Korea's jurisdiction.

  • Great blog, some people don't understand that spending a comparatively small about of money on protection is worth it to avoid the pain and heartache of having your home intruded.
