Spyware Enforcement: A Report by CDT, June 2006
By now most computer users have become familiar with the term "spyware," largely because they or someone they know have experienced it first hand. Computer users are increasingly finding programs on their computers that they did not know were installed and that they cannot uninstall, that create privacy problems and open security holes, that can hurt the performance and stability of their systems and that can lead them to mistakenly believe that these problems are the fault of their hardware or Internet provider.
One vital component of the response to this menace has been the use of new and existing laws to prosecute spyware distributors. CDT | Spyware Enforcement
