Here it comes! CNET reports:
Quote:The U.S. Department of Justice is defending computer hacking laws that make it a crime to use a fake name on Facebook or lie about your weight in an online dating profile at a site like Match.com.
In a statement obtained by CNET that's scheduled to be delivered tomorrow, the Justice Department argues that it must be able to prosecute violations of Web sites' often-ignored, always-unintelligible "terms of service" policies.
The law must allow "prosecutions based upon a violation of terms of service or similar contractual agreement with an employer or provider," Richard Downing, the Justice Department's deputy computer crime chief, will tell the U.S. Congress tomorrow.

Scaling back that law "would make it difficult or impossible to deter and address serious insider threats through prosecution," and jeopardize prosecutions involving identity theft, misuse of government databases, and privacy invasions, according to Downing.

The White House is arguing for expanding the law even further. This would criminalize teenagers using Google for violating its ToS, which says you can't use its services if 'you are not of legal age to form a binding contract,' and turns multiple attempts to upload copyrighted videos to YouTube into 'a pattern of racketeering

The only reason this is being done is annon users are more difficult for the alphabet agencies to keep tabs on. Signing up for Facebook is signing up for personal monitoring and surveillance and most are too dense to read the TOS.

Having been a teen in the 60's, I'm continually amazed that anyone thinks there would be
Anything anonymous anywhere on an electronic medium.
Your cell phone is a listening device unless the battery is removed, your cameras record device-specific info on every picture, etc.
Your savings -club-card at the supermarket tracks your demographic stats, ( just buy a new parent a case of Pampers as a gift and watch the offers you get in your mailbox, or get adult-diapers for an older person and see how many nursing homes have room for your loved ones, etc).

There's plenty of room for all God's creatures. Right next to the mashed potatoes!

Yup. I was surprised to see some people being surprised that stores actually store the information about their purchases 15.gif

Quote:The authorities and retailers can find out the contents of loyal customers’ shopping baskets, even if the trip to the store has been made many years ago.
The loyalty card programmes do not usually record individual purchases, but at the request of the authorities, retailers can connect the data of the receipt archives with customer registers.

Loyalty card data is sold to manufacturers so they don't waste money on offerings to the wrong demographic.
Actually a good idea, but the consumer is not aware of the practice.

The consumer pays extra money for this so called service. The two big grocery chains in Finland, (cartels actually, so far it's remained unprosecuted) conspire to keep prices high because of coordinated lack of competition, that coupled with the data mining they do with these cards that monitor peoples food purchase, keep Finnish food prices among the highest in Europe.

The good news is Lidil, the German newcomer has forced stores to lower prices in markets where they exist. Lidil has no card program and reasonable if not downright unbelievably good prices on most items that are just as high quality as what the 2 major chains are pimping.

Nobody told me that I had to supply good info for my card at Shop Rite, just be sure to sign up when the most bored looking teen is at the register.
octo, I'm sure you could charm some young boy into doing your will.
