Lori Drew Dismissal

While it will not become final until filed next week, Lori Drew’s conviction has been dismissed. This is important to gamers and other online folk, because the government’s theory in the case was that any violation of Terms of Service should be viewed as the same offense as hacking (“unauthorized access”), and therefore a federal crime. This would be a fun way to get rid of certain people we don’t like, but is probably one of the less intelligent legal theories to come out of California recently.

  1. Now the stupid Glider judgment has to be overturned (copyright infringement for violating ToS/EULA) and things will be right as rain.
