Cyberspace, which was first introduced in a science fiction novel, is now commonly used to describe online virtual worlds. We are in cyberspace when we read email, navigate on the Web, post NetNews articles, or chat in IRCs or MUDs. There are various problems in the current cyberspace, however, it is difficult to find general solutions for such problems because of the diversity of the relationships between the virtual and the real, which we discuss with the case of a rape in cyberspace. We also introduce certain problems of the current uses of the internet and discuss the solutions.
