Submission Anonymous Files Petition to Make DDoS Legal form of Protest-> 1

hypnosec writes: Anonymous has filed a petition with the US Government asking the Obama administration to make Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks a legal form of protests. Anonymous has argued that because of advancement in internet technology, there is a need for new ways of protests. The hacking collective doesn’t consider DDoS as a form of attack and equates it to hitting the ‘refresh’ button on a webpage. Comparing these attacks to the 'occupy' protests Anonymous notes that instead of people occupying an area, it is their computers occupying a website for a particular period of time.
