The Myth of the Superuser: Fear, Risk, and Harm Online by Paul Ohm

The Myth of the Superuser: Fear, Risk, and Harm Online by Paul Ohm (University of Colorado Law School)
The experts in computer security and Internet law have failed to deliver us from fear, resulting in overbroad prohibitions, harms to civil liberties, wasted law enforcement resources, and misallocated economic investment. This Article urges policymakers and partisans to stop using tropes of fear; calls for better empirical work on the probability of online harm; and proposes an anti-Precautionary Principle, a presumption against new laws designed to stop the Superuser.
