Hacker ‘Weev’ attempts to overturn ‘flawed’ conviction in key test of Internet freedom

Hanni Fakhoury, staff attorney at the EFF, said Auernheimer’s case was an example of a prosecution aimed at a person, not a crime: “One of the big problems of this case has always been that Auernheimer can be unsympathetic. The thing is, when you couple a very bad law [the CFAA] with the prosecutor having brought the decision being able to go after who they like, or who they don’t like, that’s a problem,” he said.
