(spain is thinking about the same) emsisoft: Emsisoft Blog: Seriously? USA to legalize rootkits, spyware, ransomware and trojans to combat piracy?

Recommended Posts

Well, this was on the news in Spain just 3 days ago.

 

This is the link in a major spanish newspaper:

It is a proposal. In theory, it hasn't been implemented yet. However it is shocking that they propose such things so naturally.

 

I hope you can manage this Emsisoft. Regardless of your good intentions, it won't be easy to resist pressure from governments and powerful entities.

The proposal will still need to have enough supporters to pass votes. Recalling what happened when Sony did something similar (link: Sony BMG copy protection rootkit scandal) a few years ago somehow i doubt the public will be very fond of this idea so lets hope politicians come to their sense. :)
