Private Investigator License | Internet Jurisdiction

The requirement for a professional to possess a private investigator's license can come as a big, rude surprise.  The surprise is becoming more common because investigations are now transpiring not in the physical world, but in the cyber world.  

In cyberspace, the laws of many places can apply all at the same time.  A professional seated in Alaska can easily fail to realize that in order to perform her work, she needs a PI license in the province of Ontario, Canada.

Don't worry, it's Canada. But HR departments, corporations and law firms that hire private investigators should determine if a PI license is required for an information gathering assignment.
