2600 - The Hacker Quarterly

There is an interesting quote on the cover o the Winter 2001-2002 2600 magazine, thought I'd share it:

"A person who, without permission of lawful authority, while the United States is at war or threatened with war, makes or attempts to make, or has in his possession or attempts to obtain, or aids another to obtain, any map, drawing, plan, model, description, or picture of any military camp, fort, armory, arsenal or building in which munitions of war are stored, or of any bridge, road, canal, dockyard, telephone or telegraph line or equipment, wireless station or equipment, railway or property of any corporation subject to the supervision of the public service board, or of any municipality or part thereof, shall be imprisoned not more than ten years."

Christ almighty! You more educated folk (bunkum), is that even a legitimate sentence? Sure looks like it to me but GOD DAMN!

It's legit, just not English, it's legalese.

Re: 2600 - The Hacker Quarterly

Basically it says:

During a time of war, if someone makes a map of, or takes pictures of, the locations of strategic targets they are in violation of some law that carries a penalty of up to ten years in prison.

So don't take a photo of a military base right now.

And yes, it is legit, but VERY hard to follow like anything else written by lawyers.

What worries me is that they said that they would resume regular type issues when the war is over. That isn't happening for a long time.....

Reading comprehension didn't surrender: I paraphrased.

France, on the other hand, always surrenders.

this is just butt-covering. The fact that is law doesn't make it illegal to do that stuff, it just makes it possible to detain and imprison someone for it.
