The Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) is a federal law that provides for civil causes of action for unlawful actions taken as part of an ongoing enterprise. In addition to the presence of an ongoing enterprise, violations of RICO require "predicate" acts which can include, among other things, the use of the U.S. mails or interstate wire facilities, including the Internet to further the alleged unlawful activity.
