Computer Trespass - 2010 Legislative Program


Initiate legislation to update current laws related to computer trespass in order to capture new technologies not covered by current law.  Current law makes it a Class 6 felony to install computer software to record keystrokes made on a computer without the owner’s permission and with malicious intent.  However, the current Code language does not address the use of hardware devices in such activity, nor does it include the capturing of “screenshots,” which are digital images or video of the contents of the user’s screen.
