Comment: Paul D. Ceglia (Score 1, Interesting) 163 163

is an idiot. BTW, I own half of Microsoft too and I have an email from 1976 from Bill Gates that said so. :rolleyes: Now Paul is going to spend a lot of time in prison instead of being treated like a first time offender by the US Attorney.

Comment: If it has been seven years since conviction (Score 1) 720 720

Move to California, The law doesn't allow most felonies to be considered unless you're a sex offender. I have a family member that is a convicted felon and he has worked for himself for 40 years. He was a convicted as a teenager of federal felony fraud for writing bad checks at Yosemite NP.

Comment: I'm still waiting for the defense lawyer that says (Score 1) 208 208

Your honor my client is a scoundrel criminal and you should give him the maximum punishment for his crime. At least Slashdot should use neutral sources regrading legal proceedings. But most of the blogger media is lazy and just quotes the lawyers for each side.

Comment: The parent gave permission (Score 1) 367 367

They just didn't have the parent sign the permission slip.

Asks schwit1, "How is this not a violation of the CFAA?"
No, fraud involved and not a "protected computer"

It sounds like the school was violating Facebook's Terms of Service, too.
Did the school employees ever agree to the Facebook TOS? No evidence of that.

Comment: This plane was stolen for money. IMHO (Score 0) 436 436

A 777-2000 is worth 230 Million dollars. The pilot(s) could sell it for $23 million dollars and live high off the hog. I think every airline better put in an automatic beacon using satellite and/or HF radio to know where every plane is at all times and the pilot(s) can't turn it off. There was another plane stolen in Angola by a mechanic ten years ago. It was never found. I'm sure that guy is living very well also. This is organized crime. IMHO. YMMV.
