Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, gets silly and vengeful; seems he's not a student of federal hacking law and the good reasons it was created: 'The chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee said Tuesday he favors developing new technology to remotely destroy the computers of people who illegally download music from the Internet... Legal experts have said any such attack would violate federal anti-hacking laws.... He [Hatch] said damaging someone's computer 'may be the only way you can teach somebody about copyrights'

' (from The Washington Post).
