March 21, 2013

Tor Ekeland, attorney for Andrew “weev” Auernheimer and Matthew Keys, joins us to discuss each of their two cases. We discuss how neither defendants actually did any “hacking,” how weev found the information he was found guilty of taking on a public AT&T server, what Matthew Keys is being charged of doing to a former employer, how both men are being charged under a draconian laws under the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act.

On The Better Half: Rush thinks Beyonce is ready to “submit” to her husband, Singapore tackles social inequality, Obama in the Middle East and your calls and IMs.

And keep the conversation going on the morning thread!
