    Man.. they put people in prison for "harmless" scripts like "Melissa" and "I love you".

    When does the FBI put some of the CEO's of those "commercial-virus-developing companies" behind bars.

    Those drive-by warez is a virus. It's installing software without the users permission on the computer to spy and/or interact computer user (usually unknow to the user).

    It's a computer virus. That's illegal.

    I don't understand the legal issues here.

    A "good old" MS DOS virus put smileys on the screen or flipped the content upside-down.
    The ugly-new viruses open comercial pop-ups/unders, build unwanted framesets and replace webpage content.
    The old guys went to jail for their uncommercial viruses. Do the same with the new ones and punish them twice, because they did it for commercial purposes (Greed). It does not make a difference because it's windows and high-res.

    Throwing out the diseased BHO baby with the turn filled water makes sense as this baby is growing into a commission murdering monster.
