Congress Wants Anti-Spyware Bill, No Matter What The Details Are

Declan McCullough is looking at one of the anti-spyware bills that's rocketing its way through Congress so that politicians can tell their constituents that they "banned spyware" in time for the November elections. Unfortunately, like with the CAN SPAM Act, the bill they're pushing could possibly make the problem worse, not better. Even more annoying is that it sounds as though a much better anti-spyware bill has been introduced by others -- but politicians have no time to actually look at which one is better, since they need to rush this bill through before they all run home to campaign for the election. Politics at work.
