Lofgren to introduce bill amending hacking law in honor of Swartz - The Hill's Hillicon Valley: "The California Democrat told The Hill earlier in the day that she briefly met Swartz when he was visiting Washington to speak out against the Stop Online Piracy Act on behalf of Demand Progress, the advocacy group he founded. Lofgren was a major opponent of the anti-piracy bill. Lawrence Lessig, a political activist and professor at Harvard Law School who briefly represented Swartz, cheered Lofgren for introducing the draft measure. "The CFAA was the hook for the government's bullying of [Swartz]. This law would remove that hook," Lessig said in a comment published on Lofgren's Reddit post. "Let's get this done for Aaron — now.""
