THE HILL: Wyden wants hearing on hacking law in wake of Swartz’s death. “Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) said he’s engaged in talks with members on both sides of the aisle about how they can update an anti-hacking law that was used to press charges against Internet activist Aaron Swartz, who committed suicide this month.
