The paper critically reviews the thesis that assumes that cybercrimes protect a specific computer-related interest. On that basis, it states that to recognize an interest with those characteristics is justified if these crimes, besides infl uencing computer software, involve the use of computer networks. To define their object of legal protection, the study refl ects on the roles that computer systems play on the free development of the person and the institutions that serve her in a democratic state of law.
