I'm noticing some scary trends lately that happen to be in line with the CFAA timeline.
Under the amendments, which might be voted on as early as April 10, violating terms of service could be defined as racketeering -- so that you
could be prosecuted as though your violation of terms of service made you into a mobster.
They also add "conspiring" to violate terms of service to the list of offenses that are a felony under the CFAA. So you can be thrown in jail just
for talking about ways to violate terms of service.
Something is brewing and I urge everyone to be extra vigilant right now.
I'm thinking certain DDoS attacks are false flags to help usher this in. People are already pointing fingers at people who MIGHT not be guilty, but
all's fair in love and war, right?
The amendments also make it a felony to obtain information that you are entitled to obtain, if you do so in a way that violates terms of service.
According to the CFAA, costs incurred to repair the system(s) after a DDoS attack must be reimbursed by the "guilty" party. The thing is, the courts
have not caught up with the age of technology yet. Just do your homework regarding MERS and the mortgage debacle and you'll see clearly how things
are not in line with each other.
Start researching now to discover where the loopholes in the bill will most likely be in order to stay one step ahead. After all, this is how
corporations avoid taxes. They find the loopholes and use them to their advantage.
I'm also wondering if those who they believe have violated the CFAA, will they be considered terrorists and allowed to be held indefinitely without
getting a fair trial?
In closing, I'd like to post one last text quote (if I may) to help put this into perspective:
This is a trainwreck. It will allow the DoJ to put every single American Internet user in prison at their discretion, because we all violate terms
of service every day. For example, Seventeen magazine's terms of service forbid you from visiting its website if you're under eighteen (!),
and that means that its 4.5 million underage readers would all be felons under the CFAA, and liable to decades in prison.
Get ready, folks. Not all of World War III is going to be fought on the physical battlefield.
