FTC Asked to Stop Stalker Spyware.

EPIC's Domestic Violence and Privacy Project filed a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission against several purveyors of stalker spyware. Stalker spyware products are over the counter surveillance technologies sold for individuals to spy on other individuals. The complaint alleges that these companies engage in unfair and deceptive practices by: (1) promoting illegal surveillance; (2) promoting "Trojan Horse" email attacks; and (3) failing to warn their customers of legal dangers of misuse of stalker spyware. The FTC is asked to investigate these companies, stop these practices, and seek compensation for victims. (March 6, 2008)
