The present dissertation proposes an analysis of the problems and consequences product of the emergence of technology and, especially, the internet, as driving tools of a new criminal reality. This study aims to reflect on the emergence not only of new crimes or criminal tools as a result of the criminalization of harmful conducts that take place in the cyberspace, but also on problems that arise at a procedural level, more specifically, the evidence that is unlawfully obtained by private individuals and its (in)admissibility in the Portuguese criminal courtrooms.
