No Harsher CFAA! Support Aaron’s Law Instead (PETITION)

No Harsher CFAA! Support Aaron's Law Instead (PETITION) | aaron2-300x199 | Internet Censorship News Articles Petitions Protestors & Activists US News

It’s a slap in the face: The whole Internet is clamoring for reform of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act because it stifles innovation and even imprisons activists and innovators like Aaron Swartz. (And could easily have been used against Steve Jobs, Mark Zuckerberg, and countless others.)

So what are some Republicans in the House thinking about doing? Expanding it, and instituting even harsher penalties.

This is completely unacceptable. Add your name at right to tell your lawmakers to oppose harsher CFAA penalties.

The new law would heighten penalties — creating the possibility of up to 30 years in prison for a single broadly-defined offense — make it easy to be considered a conspirator, and entrench law enforcement’s assertions that they should be able to put you in prison for violating terms of serivce agreements!

You can read the proposal and more analysis of it here.

This is an awful affront to all of the work we’ve been doing and to the cries for justice in the wake of Aaron’s passing. Please help us beat this thing down!
