Studies on a knowledge-based society deal with a wide range of problems, including the seldom studied aspect of crime. The criminology perspective in the context of a knowledge-based society is related to the use of new knowledge in antisocial and criminal activities, the use of new knowledge and innovative approaches in combating and preventing crime, as well as the development of new methodology in research and analysis of unfavourable and threatening trends in the formation of a knowledge-based society. The use of new technologies and methods often is not specified in regulatory documents; that can cause additional risks in their use, result in socially unfavourable or even criminal consequences or lead to using the acquired products and knowledge in achieving antisocial aims.
