Article: Anti-Phishing Act of 2004: A Useful Tool Against Identity Theft

There is a nice article in Findlaw's Writ Legal Commentary entitled, "The Anti-Phishing Act of 2004: A Useful Tool Against Identity Theft" that defines "phishing" and comments on the new anti-phishing bill introduced by Senator Patrick Leahy.

[Phishing is "the act of sending an e-mail to a user falsely claiming to be an established legitimate enterprise in an attempt to scam the user into surrendering private information that will be used for identity theft." From Small Business Computing.com]
