Justice Prevails

The recent convictions of the Sarah Palin email hacker, David Kennel, and the San Francisco system administrator, Terry Childs, are welcome events in the history of cyber crime.

These transgressions are not victimless; they affect everyone. One of the beauties of the Internet is its openness. That openness is only works if people feel safe on the Internet. When individuals take advantage of that freedom by abusing their privileges or infringing on the rights of others, it harms all of us by whittling away at that trust.

The Internet has revolutionized the way we live and that can only continue when people who violate the laws involving computer usage are punished severely.
