Blah, blah, blah.
If I make a phone call to someone, impersonating someone else, is that against the law?
If so, then it should be against the law to do so online.
If not, then it shouldn't be illegal to do so online.
What's so fucking hard to understand about that?
Yes, the internet is a rich, complicated, deep form of telecommunication. It's still telecommunications. Legally, what's the difference between a phone call, a fax, an email, or a blog?
So if a 15 year old prank calls his neighbor and informs him to catch his running refrigerator, he can go to prison?
How's that impersonating?
Impersonation also requires that the person exists. My buddy made fake IDs in high school and we figured out that by using our real picture, name, etc and simply changing the DOB we were committing a slight misdemeanor... but to use another person's identity it would be a felony.
I don't think I have a problem with this, especially if the intent is defamation, to commit fraud, or to harm someone.
Well if you prank call someone, you are pretending you are someone else.
Or does this only apply to celebrities or civilians?
so, if i were to make a post and say "oh hi, i'm dead and sexy" would i then be impersonating jon benet ramsey?
Bond, James Bond.
