With tough new cyber bullying laws to be unveiled today, inciting someone to commit suicide will be punishable with up to three years in jail.

Netsafe, a non-profit society that deals with cyber safety, is in the running to become an "approved agency" that will help the courts to resolve complaints.

Netsafe's Chief Technology Officer Sean Lyons will be with us from 12pm today to answer your questions about cyber safety, how the new laws will impact New Zealand and how your kids can protect themselves from cyber bullying.

Email your questions for Sean here.
