Legal Question

Asked on: 10/21/12, 3:15 pm

I know there used to be a federal statute prohibiting people from accessing a computer without permission. Does it still exist, and would a company that places programs on your system without your permission in violation? Could this be a basis for a very large class action civil suite based in the US? Especially from a company that installs software without your permission and with no way to uninstall it. That is you cannot even directly delete the files and directories without them having hidden files etc that automatically reload the software after the folders are deletged in a DOD secure removal.
