More like he took poetic license with the translation. The original Dutch reads; "De illusionist met de weelderig wapperende haardos...". "Weelderig"="luxuriant", and "wapperende" can be translated as "windswept" :P Apparently he's famous for his hairdo, hehe.
They should send the judges dealing with cases like these back to school to complete courses in information technology, and they should be required to go for refresher courses every few years to keep up with advances in the field. A hundred years ago there was very little change in society during a judge's lifetime, they could apply the knowledge they acquired at law school till the end of their careers and it would still be (mostly) relevant.
Today the rate of change has sped up so much (a la Alvin Toffler) that their knowledge is obsolete in a few years.
Do the law schools even give courses in technology at all?
