January 19, 1986: "The first IBM PC computer virus is released into the wild. A boot sector virus dubbed (c)Brain, it was created by the Farooq Alvi Brothers in Lahore, Pakistan, reportedly to deter piracy of the software they had written."
"It is a maxim of the law that there can be no crime without a criminal intent; that is, without the intent to invade the person or property of another. But no one ever practices a vice with any such criminal intent. He practices his vice for his own happiness solely, and not from any malice toward others" .Lysander Spooner (January 19, 1808 – May 14, 1887)
Speaking of vices...
"All the things I really like to do are either illegal, immoral, or fattening." - Alexander Woolcott (January 19, 1887 - January 23, 1943)
