No One Likes California's Anti-Spyware Bill

from the so-much-for-that-plan dept

It looks like almost no one is happy with the proposed anti-spyware legislation in California. Companies aren’t happy with it because they’re afraid it may ban perfectly reasonable applications, while privacy groups say it’s worse than no law at all since it’s way too narrowly focused. Of course, it sounds like this narrow focus is making some of the companies that originally opposed the bill now view it in a more favorable light.
