I have 2 criminal law-related news stories worth sharing.
Techdirt: Cops Who Started 'Hackers Are Us' Service Convicted
Apparently a private investigation firm in the UK named "Hackers Are Us" (by the way, fantastic name) got busted. (Gee, wonder if the name could have somehow hurt their case?) The founders of the service were convicted, and, to add even more intrigue, they were both police officers at the time they got busted.
Second, I apologize, I've had this story sitting around for a few months:
Police blotter: Teens prosecuted for racy photos | Tech News on ZDNet
Here, a teenage girl was convicted for taking "risque" photos of herself, because, guess what, she was producing child pornography. Her boyfriend, to whom she was sending the photos, was also charged with possession. And the Florida appeals court upheld the conviction.
Even more confusingly, it would not be a crime for the two of them to have sex. So, you can do the deed, but not take "risque" photos. Oh yes, the law makes a lot of sense.
