The petitions of the day are:

16-1344

Issue: Whether a person who obtains an account holder’s permission to access a computer nevertheless “accesses a computer without authorization” in violation of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act when he acts without permission from the computer’s owner.

16-1365

Issues: (1) Whether the courts below erred by balancing the trademark likelihood of confusion factors as an issue of law rather than a question of fact, contrary to the Supreme Court’s analysis in Hana Financial Inc. v. Hana Bank and the majority of circuits; and (2) whether the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit erred by affirming summary judgment against petitioner where it applied the wrong standard of review for balancing the trademark likelihood of confusion factors.
