This would eliminate the potential for prosecutors to abuse the CFAA in pursuit of criminal convictions for simple violations of a website's terms of service." The rest of the article can be found here: http://www.theatlant...ons-law/267247/# I think this presents an interesting idea in terms of the bot makers Jagex prosecuted. If something like this is to go through, even though its in the states, it redefines the way you can handle things. And truly making bots and the like is breaking the ToS, "No foul" has truly happened to Jagex, they mess up the ingame economy but that doesn't hurt Jagex as a company. Unless you can argue that they have lost customers but I'm not sure how that would hold up.
