Aaron’s Law, designed to fix Computer Fraud and Abuse Act and stop the DoJ from acting as enforcers for corporations, is finally officially introduced into the US House of Representatives.

The legislation, nicknamed after Aaron Swartz, a young genius who was hounded to death by the US authorities, is supposed to stop prosecutions based on infringing the terms of service for online products, portal notices or employment agreements under the CFAA.

Aaron Swartz took his own life a few months ago after facing federal prosecution for allegedly hacking into an MIT network and downloading a huge amount of scholarly articles from the JSTOR subscription service.

The proposed legislation will remove the charge of “exceeds authorized access” from the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act and replace it with a definition for “access without authorization”. The latter will include bypassing technology and physical measures via deception or gaining access to an authorized person’s credentials.

According to Representative Zoe Lofgren and Senator Ron Wyden, in such way it could refocus the law away from common PC and online activity and towards really damaging hacking attempts. The new law establishes a clear line which is needed to distinguish the difference between ordinary Internet activities and harmful attacks. The law will make it tougher for prosecutors to seek long prison terms for deeds involving insignificant financial gain.

It is known that Aaron Swartz was threatened with a lengthy prison term to make him admit to a lesser charge carrying a smaller prison sentence. As a result, the legendary programmer decided to take no sentence at all and committed suicide.

Demand Progress, the digital rights group co-founded by Aaron Swartz, announced that it was backing the new law. Its executive director David Segal pointed out that when the bill is signed into law it will mean that Aaron will continue to do in death what he always did in life – protecting the freedoms and rights of all people in the world.

At the moment, it is unclear how the suggested legislation will progress. It is known that there are a lot of private interests which adore the idea of people being put into prison for infringing their terms and conditions of use.

skulljockey avatarI really appreciate the style that you use when writing articles for ET. I have never read any of your stuff that involved your opinion or bias. That must be difficult at times especially when they hit close to home. I guess that's why I'm reading and you are writing. This article about Aaron was excellent and just another example of your honorable writing style. Thanks again.
