Surely even at DeVry they teach that if you refuse to hand over
passwords for property that is not legally yours, that you are
committing a crime.  I mean, think about it, it's effectively theft, in
the same sense that if you refuse to hand over the keys for a car that
you don't own, you're committing theft of an automobile.

I fail to see the operational relevance to this conviction; it's basic
common sense.
