Submission + - Could "Myspace suicide" be used against th (

modemac writes: "Chris Soghoian at CNET gave an interesting take on the outcome of the so-called "MySpace suicide case," in which Lori Drew was found "guilty of three misdemeanor violations of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, punishable with up to one year in a federal prison and a $100,000 fine for each of the three counts." Chris writes: "Until the Drew case is overturned, [ISP] terms of service would appear to have the power of federal hacking laws to back them up. Could the precedent set by the Lori Drew case provide ammunition to pirates, activists, and the thousands of other Internet users who have an anti-RIAA ax to grind?""
