Laptop seizures at customs cause thorny legal dispute - Business - The Boston Globe

David House took his laptop to Mexico a little over a year ago, hoping to squeeze in some work between sightseeing, fishing, and laying on the beach. All went well, vacation- and work-wise, until the former MIT researcher landed in Chicago, where federal agents seized his laptop, kept it for nearly two months, and may have shared information on his hard drive with several government agencies.

Als Folge des Angriffs musste der “Patras”-Server abgeschaltet werden, über den die Polizei Verdächtige observiert.
