Anyway I am looking for any news about this sharing info with the government, if you have any saved websites or anything on it plese sahre. TIA. I ask
this due to I heard that shortly after 911 these grooups offered all this info to the government and began working with them to catch the trrorists.
I'm assuming this includes companies that gather info through the cards we use to purchase items that eventually build an idea of our hobbies, who we
owe, what books we purchase, what music we purchase, etc.. I am wondering if this also includes those companies that uses those spyware programs
that they install without our knowlege. Currently there is a lawsuit about this and I am wondering if these are the ones involved being used by our
gov. if there is any possilbe way the lawsuit can be won?
ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - New York Attorney General Eliot Spitzer on Thursday sued a major Internet marketer, claiming the company installed ``spyware''
and ``adware'' that secretly install nuisance pop-up advertising on screens which can slow and crash personal computers.
