Have you ever borrowed a smartphone without asking? Modified a URL? 
Scraped a website? Called an undocumented API? Congratulations: you 
might have violated federal law! A 1986 statute, the Computer Fraud and 
Abuse Act (CFAA), provides both civil and criminal remedies for mere 
"unauthorized" access to a computer.

This event aims to provide a geek perspective on the CFAA. Leading 
researchers, tinkerers, and entrepreneurs will explain the broad reach 
of computer trespass law and their first-hand experience with its 
chilling effects. All agree that serious intrusions warrant a remedy. 
But how can the law better distinguish between innovation and exploitation?
