Some relevant issues in this case: Posing as someone else on Facebook, repeated attempts to contact those who do not wish contact, the creation of additional usernames in order to find a way "in".

Definitely things we should look out for as our children become more active on the internet--there are adults out there who will try just about any lame stunt. Nice to know they can face jail time.

Yeah, but the quick way is Apple-Shift-4. It gives you a cross-hairs cursor and you can click/drag what you want to save. Let go the mouse and you get a .png on your desktop. To quickly take a screenshot, Apple-Shift-3 does the whole thing.

The Mac comes with a nice, simple little program for pics and pdfs, called "Preview." If you open it it has under "file" the option of "take screen shot." It creates a jpg of the browser window in question.

Windows Vista and 7 have built in screenshot tools. On vista it's called the "snipping tool" (It's actually a handy little feature). I don't know about earlier versions of Windows.

On a Mac, it's a set of keystrokes, but I can never remember them without seeing the keyboard and I'm not at work. If no one else posts it, I'll do it when I get home.

I usually use the edit/select all then cut/paste it to word and/or use the print screen key on my keyboard.

What does a person do/use to take screen shots?

I don't know. I think I AG is too busy to actually enforce the law. You know, with all the state emblem changing, discriminating and federal government suing. His plate is fairly full.

Well, that's good! And yeah, it's especially helpful that the case is in Virginia.
