Congress Considers "Aaron's Law" To Reduce Abusive Hacker Prosecutions

Representative Zoe Lofgren has posted on Reddit a modified draft of Aaron's Law, a proposal to update the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act and wire fraud law in honor of our friend Aaron Swartz and to make sure that the misguided prosecution that happened to him doesn't happen to anyone else.  We're very pleased with the proposal's progress and we're hopeful about the future of this important bill.
