Comment Exempt from wire-tapping laws? (Score 4, Interesting) 223

IANAL, but I was wondering if this would be illegal under wire-tapping laws. A quick glance over the code (18 - US 2511) actually specified "oral" not "audio" communication. Would this then be exempt?

I suppose any app that takes advantage of this would have a disclosure about the recording buried deep in its legalese.

Comment Where does it say this data is actually fake? (Score 1) 262

Not verified, but that doesn't necessarily mean it's bogus.

All I see are claims that it was not sponsored or verified by those spearheading OPKKK. Doubts about the data's veracity are mentioned but not supported.
All we know is 1) this was not likely associated w/ the release coming on 11/5. 2) Nobody has verified or disproven the names on this list.

You don't have to know how the computer works, just how to work the computer.
