Although this proved not to be the case, the incident quickly became a cause célèbre and helped motivate computer-savvy civil libertarians to form the Electronic Frontier Foundation. That the cyberpunk worlds aren't nice orderly places with straightforward stories and usually aren't wrapped up in a nice neat conclusion by a hero that puts the world to rights doesn't really help our sense of unease.
