| The law that the article seems to be talking about is 80(R) HB 2388.
| Another page that has the relevant section of the law highlighted is:
| If I read this right, tracking down what someone did to mess up their
computer, or how it was hacked and by who would both be things I do on a
regular basis that are totally normal in the computer world and would
violate this law.
And I thought the Texas legislature was smarter than that.
I wonder how this affects commercial entities such as Geek Squad, and
Circuit City's Firedog. Theoretically, they could only employ Private
Investigators to do the work for them. I worked for them for a bit, and
I promise you, I'm not a PI.
I sure hope this gets shut down. It's quite possible the most ridiculous
thing I've heard of...
