Hello,
This may be none of my buisness but here it goes. I would tend to
agree with Mr. Kitzmann. Let's not get off the track of the main question.
I don't believe it is necessary to go into the morality of the issue at
hand. I think just a simple answer whether the system would work or not
would suffice. How he is going to use the system is his buisness. I would
assume that he owns the system and would be allowed to use the system as he
chooses within legal limits.

Nancy, maybe you don't understand the term Surveilance. You know like when
you go to a store and they use cameras to protect their product? Well, the
same thing applies here. I think he meant for monitoring for the
deterrence of theft.

I don't think CU-SeeMe was intended as a surveillance tool. If by
surveillance you mean spying on people. To me that seems an invasion of
privacy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I would hope this software would be used for
the
benefit of people and not the benefit of snoops!!
