Submission + - LMSD Response to Webcam Privacy Allegation (tekgoblin.com)

tekgoblin writes: The Lower Merion School District of Pennsylvania was recently accused of privacy invasion per this post. Now the school has released an official response to the allegations.

The software that was installed would take a photo of the person using the laptop after it was stolen to give to the authorities. Now this may be what it was intended for, but it seems that someone did’nt get the memo.
