Good thought, but I was thinking more along the lines of UETA and
E-SIGN, along with the usual criminal penalties for forgery and
fraud (and intent to defraud).

I'm pretty sure those are state by state.

On the US Federal level, there's 18 USC 2511 - Interception and
disclosure of wire, oral, or electronic communications prohibited.

In any case, there's plenty of law to choose, we simply need a solid
test case.  Family members are Wide Open West (WOW) subscribers, and
they are listed among the miscreant companies that Heather linked.
I'd happily be a plaintiff based on my use of their network, but we
probably need some actual affected subscribers.
