Support Aaron's Law

Quote:
You know those license agreements you always click the “I agree” box next to on every piece of software ever? Right now if you accidentally break one of those, it’s a felony. The proposed law would decriminalize such violations; instead those agreements would be treated as contracts, with any disagreements handled in civil court (as they should be).
(There's a link to where you can register support for the new law with one click.)
