+ - Proxy Use Made Criminal Under CFAA-> 1

Submitted by WillgasM
WillgasM (1646719) writes ""Changing your IP address or using proxy servers to access public websites you've been forbidden to visit is a violation of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act." according to a judge's broad ruling during a case on Friday involving Craigslist and 3taps. Opponents argue that this creates a slippery slope that many unsuspecting web users may find themselves upon. With your typical connection being assigned an address dynamically, is an IP ban really a "technological barrier" to be circumvented? How long until we see the first prosecution for unauthorized viewing of a noindex page?"
