There is nothing wrong with hacking (except for national security). All companies try to steal business secrets from their competitors EVERY day unless you live in a cave for the last 10 years, or you believe in fairy tales or CIA a friendly, information-gathering agency.
We should protect our secrets. Period.
It is like a beautiful lady (with a lot of goodies and secrets) dressed almost naked and jogging in the middle of the night in a crime neighborhood. Can she justifiably ask you or her father to prosecute the violator? If so, should the world prosecute NSA (who is no angel especially to Angela) for spying on them? I rest my case.
