We need to push back against attempts to create even harsher CFAA penalties.
We believe that these lawamkers listed below are the key members of the House Judiciary Committee whom we need to urge to oppose the new CFAA bill. Would you call as many of them as you can? You can tell them:
We need reform of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act to make sure that no more activists and innovators are threatened with prison time by the current statute's over-breadth. But now House Republicans are circulating a draft bill that would expand the CFAA and increase penalties.
We need you to oppose it, and to support Aaron's Law, likely to be introduced by Rep. Lofgren and Sen. Wyden.
If you'd like more detail on the new bill and why it's bad, take a look at this article in Techdirt.
The priorities are:
Likely sponsor: Randy Forbes (R-VA): (202) 225-6365
Chair: Bob Goodlatte (R-VA): (202) 225-5431

Jason Chaffetz (R-UT): (202) 225-7751
