"prosecution for criminal acts" - is sending an animation a criminal act? TFA provides little in the way of detail regarding the animation. Is it something intentionally crafted to induce seizures in epilepsy sufferers? Is it something intentionally crafted for another purpose that has the peculiar side effect of inducing seizures in epilepsy sufferers? If the latter, does the fact that it was sent via Twitter (and apparently targeted) matter? Would it be better or worse for the epilepsy sufferer if the animation was displayed on a giant screen in Times Square?
