Video from House Judiciary Committee’s Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, Homeland Security and Investigations re: CFAA

The video of the hearing today can be seen here. It includes commentary from Orin Kerr regarding the Nosal holding of the 9th Circuit and his recommendation that Congress act to amend the CFAA to clarify the ambiguity in the statute regarding "unauthorized access" and "exceeds authorized access" which has led to a circuit split on the statute's reach.

There is also an interesting discussion about hacking back.
