What Tony did did not actually commit fraud as it is legally defined. He showed how easy it was to find him and attack him if you were interested in such things. That that negatively impacted how registration would be voted on isn't any sort of the legal definition of fraud. Neither Tony or Titanium Man lied about their motives, which is part of the fraud claim, IIRC.
