The Ninth Circuit issued a decision in U.S. v. Christensen that is likely to create even more confusion about the scope of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (CFAA).  The court purported to simply reiterate its earlier decision in U.S. v. Nosal, which held that the Act prohibits only unauthorized access to information on a computer, and not unauthorized use of information.  But the court’s befuddled decision can be read as narrowing the scope of the CFAA even further than Nosalin a way that would make it much more difficult for network owners to legally enforce limitations on employees’ access to certain data within a network.
