Hanni Fakhoury, staff attorney with the Electronic Frontier Foundation said the decision is based on faulty reasoning.

"We've seen a sort of 'hacker madness' permeating across the courts recently," Fakhoury said. "The court took a pretty extraordinary step by relying on stereotype and hyperbole rather than really digging into the facts."

Courts need to look beyond the word "hacker" and assess whether a defendant is likely to cause the harm that a plaintiff claims is likely, Fakhoury said.
