Cyberpicketing is the use of the Internet to protest a corporation or other institution's wages, work conditions, products, environmental policy, or other issues. The most common type of cyberpicketing is e-mail directed to CEOs or other influential parties. Cyberpicketing can also involve setting up and maintaining a Web site as a way to publicize and organize action. In some cases, cyberpicketing sites have been designed to look like and have domain name s similar to the Web site of the institution that is being picketed against.
