Yes! Exactly! They need that wood because it makes a specific sound that makes the instruments they produce in AMERICA sound good. Why is that so hard to comprehend? The same idiots who complain about this wood that customs allowed in our country will complain when Gibson decides it just isn't worth it anymore and then moves their production out of the USA. How daft can so many Liberals be that they can't comprehend this simple fact.
No wonder the Liberals haven't been able to fix our economy. This over regulation is killing us.
I work for a major university. Sorry, but it isn't called spyware, but management software (Microsoft makes such a product). One of the features of this management software is to easily report what is installed on a persons computer. This type software and use has been used for more than a decade.
Why does a company or university use it? To make sure nothing is installed on the computer that will compromise the very network your computer is using. That isn't the only use, but one of the many uses of this type of software. Why does a university or company want to limit the use of file sharing programs? It can be an attack vector and many consider it a security issue running on a network. Students seems to forget that the network they share with the rest of the community is used for many important things beside downloading software. It is important to make sure the network bandwidth isn't clogged with hundreds of PC's downloading movies or TV shows.
