+ - Rather Than Fix The CFAA, House Judiciary Committee Planning To Make It Worse->

walterbyrd writes "Adds computer crimes as a form of racketeering. Expands the ways in which you could be guilty of the CFAA — including making you just as guilty if you plan to "violate" the CFAA than if you actually did so. Ratchets up many of the punishments. Makes a very, very minor adjustment to limit "exceeding authorized access." Expands the definition of "exceeding authorized access" in a very dangerous way. Makes it easier for the federal government to seize and forfeit anything."
