Re: Wire fraud

So really the wire fraud law is about as relevant to modern Murka as the laws about compulsory longbow practice on a Sunday are relevant to England. Perhaps time for an update, although it does seem to be useful.

Although...some 'antiquated' laws can often still be appropriate. There were many laws in C19 UK about driving horses and carts - furious driving, not in control, no registration plate, no light at night, going too fast etc - and they all still exist for cars.
