Question: Robert Tappan Morris released onto the Internet


Robert Tappan Morris released onto the Internet a worm that spread and multiplied. The worm found its way into computers at several educational and military sites, causing these computers to crash. Morris was charged with violating section 2(d) of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act of 1986. Morris was able to prove during a jury trial that, while in fact he had released the worm, he did not do so intentionally. Nonetheless, Morris was found guilty of violating the law. He appealed his conviction on the grounds that his access to these educational and military computers was not without authorization because Morris did not intend to access them. Will Morris be successful in his appeal of the guilty verdict? [United States v. Morris, 928 F.2d 504 (Washington, D.C.)]
