Microsoft writes bill for Oklahoma authorizing wholesale spying

According to the Oklahoma Gazette, the state legislature has passed a bill that Microsoft helped write that gives vendors of software the right to check around you computer, delete files they consider unauthorized, and turn you into the local authorities if they don’t like the way your computer smells.

This is all being done to keep you secure.

Yes, you can refuse to agree to the end user license agreement, but more likely you’ll just click on it without reading the fine print. And if you refuse to sign the EULA, you don’t get to use the software.

OK not OK. [Ultimately, this link came through Dave Farber’s list.] [Tags: ]
