Geek Piracy on the Digital Highway

<quote>
Consumer-advocate blog Consumerist ran a sting operation to catch a Best Buy Geek Squad member searching for and stealing media files from a customer's computer. The article includes the story with screen captures and a video of the technician's actions.
...Our sources say that some Geek Squad locations have a common computer set up where everyone dumps their plunder to share with the other technicians.'

Aye matey. There's a toll to be paid on the digital highway. To pass safely we must copy some of your goods. I see the navy branch of the RIAA being activated immediately.

Of course this happens. It also happens that companies steal their client's data and then share it with their partners and sell it to others.

If you have a trade secret, you maintain it by not sharing it with ANYONE. Non-disclosure agreements mean NOTHING.
