The following contribution is from committee member Robert Kain.  We will be discussing this at the upcoming committee meeting in Naples where input from the membership will be sought:

Ladies and Gentlemen:  There is a serious split in the Circuit Court decisions about the application of the CFAA and the meaning of “exceeds authorized access.”  With respect to employee-hackers, what is legal in Calif. And Virginia, is not legal in Miami and Dallas per a group of circuit court decisions.  The attached “Committee Draft Version” article seeks the Committee’s input on whether or not the CFAA should be amended.  Also, I seek critical comments on the document.

Please feel free to leave your comments here if you will not be able to make it to Naples.
