DOJ: Violating a Site's ToS Is a Crime

Prisoner #1: What you in for?
Prisoner #2: I didn't post my correct photo on match.com.

Well,.... I guess they're keeping someone safe. Nah!

Edit:

Damn! When they add up all my old hotmail accounts I could be facing 20 years!X

It's about freedom.

That's exactly why this will never actually go through. Anyone who's ever used the internet has likely inadvertently broken dozens of ToS agreements. It sounds like a good idea to them now, but when they figure out that 99% of the United states is facing jail time because of it, well they'll change their tune rather quickly.

Edit: Guess it didn't like the quote.

This is beautiful. Its like companies weren't satisfied to not actually be liable for crimes against humanity (Kiobel vs. Royal Dutch Petroleum), they have to go ahead and make violating silly fake contracts no one reads a goddamn crime.

Supreme Court To Rule On Corporate Personhood For Crimes Against Humanity

Supreme Court should be taking arguments in February. Promises to be a disappointment. The Court loves those corporations.

It's about freedom.

Too be fair posting fraudulent photos on dating websites should be prison worthy. I mean have you ever been on a date where somebody say misrepresented themselves by a few pounds...say a few years ago?

You never make that mistake again...like a kidnapping/ransom photo from then on. I want current date and time with a newspaper in your photo album prior to meeting!

This is another on my long list of crimes you don't want to admit to being imprisoned for to your 300 pound cellmate convicted of serial buttrape.

Also on my list of crimes that are inelligible for any sort of street cred.

*IF* they start to push this - the 2 effects I see:

1) People may actually start paying attention to what they agree to and try to follow the rules for a change. Shocking notion.

2) TOS agreements will be reworked to avoid making it so people violate the rules.

You have a lot of people with the attitude that they don't have to follow through on with anything that isn't "legally binding". No matter what they agree to, it's not their responsability if it's not "legally enforceable". So if they make it enforceable then perhaps a small return to some form of honesty might come out.

Just look at all those games with gold buyers who agree to the terms then violate those terms simply because they can't be legally held accountable for their actions. Look at sites like google that mandates users to be of legal age to use their services... So on and so forth.

Both sides of those agreements hold a good deal of greedy self-interested individuals who don't care but when it holds legal penalties and people begin to notice the moronic clauses coupled in with their having agreed to those for a long time... Perhaps we can see some positive changes as corporations are held accountable for their TOS's as well as those who agree to them.

I normally like to jump on stories like this and defend the other side when people start smiling and nodding without actually discussing anything. Cops, the government, corporate america... they are too easy to hate and they need a champion some times or everyone gets too comfortable assuming they're evil and stops really thinking about things.

Just wanted to check in and note that this... is exactly what it seems and I have no argument to make in defense of their blatantly vague law which could likely apply to anyone on the internet if they wanted it to. Please feel free to use 1984 and police state arguments to hyperbole without me intervening.

FRAUD AND RELATED ACTIVITY IN CONNECTION WITH COMPUTERS


I think the main thing that bothers me is that the law has no 'spirit' or intent. Like we just went round and round on this forum about police arresting people for 'eavesdropping' and it being thrown out over and over. I'm not trying to dig that entire issue up again, but the bottom line legally speaking was that recording police wasn't within the intent the law was made from. This however, has no intent. It's obviously written to be vague even in it's title and description.

If an officer arrested you for this law RIGHT NOW at your computer, you would not have any such defense, and it would not be a wrongful or false arrest because nearly everyone violates a ToS in some way or another. That **** is scary.

I wonder if Herzog will show me how to make a good hat if I bring him one of those 18'x500" rolls of aluminum foil from the wholesale club.

On a high school de-education I can afford a nice apartment in an expensive area by myself, drive a new car, eat like a king, and play games online, while putting away a meager savings, and no one bothers me save the odd text message on my cell phone advertising something and the handful of junk mail I throw out in the trash can they place right by the mail boxes.

Meanwhile the entire world claims my economy is in the toilet, my police rule my life, I have no privacy, no rights, too many bills, my leaders are idiots, corporate america is stealing all my money, we're destroying the planet, and every president is some kind of extremist.

If I wasn't here living the good life I'd probably think it was a sucky place to be as well.

That's what they said about the UK and it's fat soaked Deep Fried Mars Bars. But now that's everywhere around the world so no matter where you live expect Deep Fried Butter to a Fry Truck near you soon.

In America the #1 cause of death is eating the whatever deliciously bad foods anyone wants all day every day until it destroys our bodies, and we get no exercise because for the most part have no need to do manual labor on a regular basis, and that means it's a bad place to live.

Wait.

What?
