Court Says 'Hacker' Label Indicates Bad Intentions

The U.S. District Court for the District of Idaho decided that a self-described label of “hacker” is significant enough to be used as evidence for bad intentions. Furthermore, the Court decided that since the defendant called himself a hacker, that was evidence enough to allow for seizure, via the copying of a hard drive, even though the Court said that such copying “is a serious invasion of privacy.”
