Advocacy Group Issues New Report on Spyware

by Sabrina I. Pacifici on November 18, 2003

From the Center on Democracy and Technology (CDT), a new report, Ghosts in Our Machines: Background and Policy Proposals on the “Spyware” Problem” offers a straight-forward review of how spyware programs operate, how to locate and disable them, and federal laws that in some measure address this technology, albeit with less than satisfactory results for consumers. In conjunction with this report, the CDT has launched a Campaign Against “Spyware” in an effort to gather information from consumers which will then become part of a complaint to be filed with the FTC.
