Sounds almost like they are wanting someone to write them a trojan they can install on peoples computers.

Reading things such as this enrages me.

This software could easily be adapted to spy on secure server-pages and collect credit-card numbers.

Surely there is some privacy law against such software.

It tickles me that the media doesn't care about such spyware available on the internet, but when DoubleClick attempt to anonymously track people over multiple web-sites there's an uproar!!
