Utah takes on Spyware

Spyware is a crime in Uah that can earn someone a fine of $10,000 per incident. I'm in favor of outlawing spyware, but that sounds like a lot of money, and I hope that the law isn't so vague that innocent people get prosecuted under the law.

The other concern I have is that, like laws criminalizing spam, enforcement might not be well thought out, or spelled out, and the law may make absolutely no difference, except on paper.
