Joana Reis Barata  (Associate) writes an article entitled "The Lisbon Court of Appeal's restlessness regarding the application of the e-mail seizure regime" for the book "Prof. Doutor Augusto Silva Dias in Memoriam", a work edited by AAFDL Editora, which gathers a wide range of articles mainly related to the teachings of the law professor.

In the article, the lawyer addresses several issues related to the application of article 17 of the Cybercrime Law, namely the scope of the remission operated to article 179 of the Criminal Procedure Code which projects itself in the (in)distinction between open or closed e-mail messages, in the (un)need for judicial authorisation for its seizure, in the need for the judge to be the first to become aware of the content of the seized messages, amongst others.
