Journal utopianfiat's Journal: Viral Privacy Policies? 1

Recalling a long, drawn-out debate and discussion over how certain licenses (XFree, I'm looking at you) are "viral" in the sense that they'll only accept pure-free code, and thus any linked code must be free-as-in-freedom as well. It occurred to me later on that this kind of policy might be the bulletproof privacy policy consumers are looking for: A privacy policy that explicitly states that it is required for their affiliates to have the exact same privacy policy as they do. This way, if you're convinced the company won't use your information in evil ways, you'll be convinced their affiliates won't, either.
