Assembly Bill 1392 and In-Game Spyware

Short entry today for a change. I just found out that California assemblywoman Lori Saldaña went ahead and introduced a bill last month (introduced on the 23rd, and first read on the 26th of February 2007) aimed at strengthening existing online privacy laws, which would potentially include new rules about the use of spyware in online games. Assembly Bill 1392 is scheduled to be heard in committee on March 27th. As it stands, the bill is exceedingly vague - read it here - but it will be interesting to see what develops during the committee hearing next week.
