1 + 1 + 1 = precedent.

When disclosure is illegal - or legal (perspective is everything.)

http://yro.slashdot.org/story/13/03/18/1641221/41-months-in-prison-for-man-who-leaked-att-ipad-email-addresses

In 2010, querying a public AT&T database yielded over 114,000 email address for iPad owners who were subscribed to the carrier. One of the people who found these emails, Andrew 'weev' Auernheimer, sent them to a news site to publicize AT&T's security flaw. He later ended up in court for his actions. Auernheimer was found guilty, and today he was sentenced to 41 months in prison


If you catch a gap in their db, you're a criminal. If they catch you?

Precedent is the word for the month, I think. What if you stumble across the HS db of gun owners and out them??

Food for thought as the fight intensifies.
