Don't Even Think About Accessing
Computer Data Without Permission

This AP story reports that an employee of a market-intelligence company pleaded guilty to federal charges of obtaining unauthorized access to a customer's computer files. The files included passwords and personal data of the customer's own customers. The market-intelligence employee reportedly downloaded the data to CDs and stored it at his house, just because he liked to have it -- he didn't use it for criminal or commercial purposes.
