"Stalking is a type of overt surveillance which is a step up from basic bullying. It utilizes psychological, physical and economic harm tactics just like a cold war. Stalking behaviours are interrelated to harassment and intimidation and may include following the victim in person or monitoring them. "
2002 report by the U.S. National Center for Victims of Crime
"Virtually any unwanted contact between two people that directly or indirectly communicates a threat or places the victim in fear can be considered stalking", although in practice the legal standard is usually somewhat stricter.
