The law used to prosecute Internet freedom activist and hacker Aaron Swartz could be amended in the near future - in the late Reddit co-founder's honor.
At least if Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-CA) wants.
Lofgren posted on Reddit Tuesday evening a proposal to amend the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, under which Aaron was being charged.
"We should prevent what happened to Aaron from happening to other Internet users," Lofgren wrote Wednesday on a post, appropriately, on Reddit.
Swartz committed suicide Friday at the age of 26.
