This could fit well in so many sections but I thought I'd place it here...
I found these to be very interesting considering the topic of what is and is not a crime. and various senerios, comes up quite often here...

This is why we need a "Legal Discussions" forum: http://www.antionline.com/showthread...hreadid=265461

A forum that focused on legal topics would own.

This will depend on the jurisdiction where it occurred, where it originated, etc. ( most laws Iíve seen can prosecute in either location: extradition comes to mind here. )

Depends, who, what, where, when, why?
... what are the chances of me wanting to break into such a lousey sytem and even more so what are the chances that the owner of such a cheap set up would be paying somone with the skill to trace my actions.
They may not be paying anyone. Maybe they are a charity and someone got doubted into doing it for free. Or it is a system administered by someone who is paranoid ( sound familiar to anyone ? ) Or maybe it is a government honeypot.
In any event, this brings to mind a movie I just saw: a thief says he made $100,000 on a job that he spent 20 minutes performing. Without going into prep time, someone asked him how much time he spent in jail. Five years was the answer. Lets see, 40 hours a week ( 2080 hrs. a year ) , overtime after that ( 6680hrs. ) for five years .... how much did he make an hour? Not counting holidays for double time, etc., but counting time and a half for additional hours ( 6680 hrs. a year ) he made about $0.438 per hour, had no time off, no freedom, and does not take into account legal fees, fines, etc. Not to mention future job opportunities. ( Oh, there is always the lecture and book tours! )
Again, this would depend on where the offense was prosecuted and the laws that applied.
I think I would rather count nails at Home Depot!
