Footnote, Prof. Kerr literally wrote the book on Computer Crime Law: http://www.amazon.com/Computer-Crime-Law-American-Casebook/d...

Not that you should accept his argument without scrutiny, but he's read a few of the cases here.

It's also worth noting that he literally wrote the book on the law of computer crime [1], and served as a pro bono (free) defense attorney _against_ the DOJ in the Lori Drew MySpace case [2], and he was extensively critical of the government in that case [3], and he has testified before Congress to say that the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act is too broad.[4]

He worked for the DOJ from 1998-2001. If he harbors sympathies for the government, they're pretty well hidden at this point.
