Re: Depends on who owns the computer...

It may be that the owner of the hardware has the legal right to run - and forbid - any software they want on it. The question though is whether they _should_ be monitoring every activity of the user of that hardware... are relations between US employers and employees so bad that this sort of monitoring is necessary, or is this some micromanagement fad instigated by the MBA theories of 'if you're measuring it, you're managing it'?
