02/17/2005: From the "Things that make you go 'hmmmmmmmmm'" department:
Over on Eric's Other (Work Related) Blog, he points us to an interesting court decision. Apparently, a Florida appeals court ruled that a woman's using a keystroke logger in order to get evidence of her husband's philandering violated Florida statutes against interception of electronic communications. Then inquired Eric:
So, let me see if I got this straight. It is ok for an employer to log, scan, record and monitor all of your communications while on the clock but it is not ok for a spouse to install some software that does pretty much the same thing?I'll invite Karen to comment on that one. First, because she's much closer to having been a practicing lawyer than I am (I "retired" a few years after she got her J.D, IIRC), and second because, if I'm understanding her explanation of the family business, there may be an interpretation under which she's married to her employer.
Very interesting. What if you're married to your employer?
