Is Any Computer Crime Not Legal In The UK?
from the time-to-move dept
It looks like the UK is having a bad, bad week when it comes to fighting computer crime. Already, we've had a story showing that denial of service attacks are legal and the UK government reminded everyone that spamming businesses is legal. Now, to add to that, experts are saying that Sony's now infamous rootkit is actually perfectly legal in the UK, because the end user license agreement reveals just enough to make it legal, and limits any legal liability to $5.
