Wrong- I suggest you re-read the article:
So we are not talking about unauthorised snooping of information on a privately owned system - but on a publicly owned system. He is accused of illegally accessing computers belonging to the US army, navy, air force, NASA, the Department of Defense as well as a number of private companies.
Additionally, my social security number and lots of other private information about me is stored on numerouns "publicly owned systems," but that does NOT mean anyone has the right to access it.
