Hacking is NOT a Crime

Hacking is NOT a Crime  is a non-profit organization seeking to raise awareness about the pejorative use of the terms "hacker" and "hacking" throughout the media and popular culture. Specifically, the negative stereotype with which the terms are so often associated. Hackers are often vilified and portrayed as unethical individuals.

Because of this, many hackers refrain from publicly disclosing privacy and security vulnerabilities they discover for fear of legal retaliation. Consequently, this is creating an increasingly hostile digital frontier due to ongoing compromises. We therefore advocate global legal reform to provide safeguards for hackers conducting good-faith privacy and security research.
