Bill imposes prison time over 'spyware'
Offenders under his bill would be sentenced for up to five years for secretly installing spyware to break into someone's computer and commiting another federal crimehttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JOtab0BKOGY

Nothing will change really. Kids will still agree to anything to get to a web site. It's a beginning though.

This bill won't change anything. Most of the companies that are associated with spyware and spamming probably aren't even located in the US."I'm hung like a horse and will kill you for no reason."

well...I'm sure that when they warn you using 3pt font on the bottom of their page they're not breaking the law :\

Don't be correcting my posts. I pick my words specifically. I installed Internet for Shaw in B.C. and Monarch in Alberta. Most of what I did was conversions. 90% of the computers that were spyware and virus infested were mainly operated by the kids in the house. The parents confessed that if a pop-up appeared wanting a yes or a no they usually shut the page down out of fear.
What I found was kids could use a computer like a hot damn but not know the consequences of their actions.

Oh. Sorry, Beemer. In my experience, it's always just stupid people in general clicking yes to everything. That includes both kids and adults.
I've actually blocked my computers from accessing the computers that belong to my room mates because they're both idiots.
