+ - TOS Violations No Longer A Crime (On Their Own)->

Submitted by nonprofiteer
nonprofiteer writes: The Computer Fraud and Abuse Act previously made "unauthorized access to a computer system" a crime — meant to apply to hackers, it also criminalized violations of a website's TOS or of a workplace's computer policies. The law is being changed to make the crime a felony rather than a misdemeanor. Senators Franken and Grassley added an amendment to exempt violations of TOS and employer policies from the lists of felony activity. w00t for common sense.
