"...by working entirely within the law."

The fact is that pointing fingers at one thing, doesn't mean everything else is not part of the problem...overeager prosecutors, ambiguous laws, weev being an annoying idiot, and AT$T's maudlin lawyers. Maybe if any one of those factors were missing, weev would be a free, racist, idiot. But the lack of consistent and straightforward case law in these incidents means that if you touch an IP address in a questionably appropriate way, you could become a security hero, go to FPMITA prison, or anything in between.
