Supreme Court takes a byte out of computer crime law [telecom]

Justice Amy Coney Barrett wrote for the majority that "the government's interpretation of the statute would attach criminal penalties to a breathtaking amount of commonplace computer activity."

Under the government's reading of the law, any employee who used a work computer for personal tasks when the employer limited computer use to business purposes would potentially violate the law, Barrett said. The same would go for those who violated the terms of service on a website or app.
