Proposed Consent Agreement In the Matter of DesignerWare, LLC, FTC File No. 1123151

I wasn t very happy today when I went to pay my rental bill and was informed that the discount I was getting because I allowed the installation of tracking software was going away because of a ruling by the FTC Give me a break. I have no problem with them viewing my webcam, I gave them permission. They agreed to only use it if I reported the computer stolen to prove that I did not have it. If I m not doing something wrong then why would I care Also, I can always put a sticker over the webcam if I thought they were spying on me. Lastly, you d be an idiot not to notice because my laptop has a light on it that shows me the camera is on. If that light is on and I did not turn on the camera then I know something was up. To me this just sounds like someone got caught stealing a computer from a rental store and is now claiming to be the victim. People need to grow up in this country and take responsibility for their own actions. Please don t allow stores not to use this software it saves me a lot of money.
