Aaron Swartz News, Articles and Updates

Jennifer Granick, the center's director of civil liberties, said Tuesday that CIS wants to lead the push to amend the federal anti-hacking law, called the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (CFAA).
The suicide of Aaron Swartz may prompt changes to a federal anti-hacking statute that many view as overly broad, heavy-handed and outdated.
