News.com (.com) has word on a US bill that would, if it becomes law, allow people to sue for restitution in ID theft cases.

The bill would also eliminate a requirement that the loss resulting from damage to a victim's computer must exceed $5,000 for prosecution; make it a felony to use spyware or keyloggers to damage 10 or more computers; and expand the definition of cybercrime to include extortion schemes that threaten to damage or access confidential information on a computer.
Please, let this pass and then let the RIAA get hit by it.
