Vehicle For Dissertation - Tech Edition

A resource for technology information I find interesting... And maybe you will too.

According to TechWeb Republican Rep. from California, Mary Bono has reintroduced her "Securely Protect Yourself Against Cyber Trespass Act" (SPY ACT) anti-spyware bill she attempted to pass last year.

My initial thought is that legislation against spyware is going to do very little to change that software situation. We have plenty of legislation currently (on other cyber issues) that I don't really think does a great deal of preventative good. I think that smart counter-spyware technology is a better way to go. And that depends on talented developers not legislators.

Be warned, I've not read the bill...yet. I plan to have a look at it, and you can too, at: THOMAS - U.S. Congress on the Internet. (Search for "SPY ACT" and choose H.R.29.IH).
