Have you ever borrowed a smartphone without asking? Modified a URL? Scraped a website? Called an undocumented API? Congratulations – you might have violated federal law.

This event aims to provide a geek perspective on the CFAA.

All agree that serious intrusions warrant a remedy. But how can the law better distinguish between innovation and exploitation?
