I am for defensivethinking.com and hope the guy gets a break. Not because of what he did. All he did was some real good social engineering. Unfortunately, the government and judicial system fucked him over. So he should have some good luck in the future.
Also, I think his probation is up at that point, but he still cannot make any money off the story of what happened, until 2007 I think.
B/C Kevin Spacey wanted to make a movie about it and the whole abuse of rights thing. Spacey playing Mitnick, I would go see it. Better than skeet ulrich's job
Even though I liked that movie, funny shit.
