nonprofiteer written by exposing embarrassing thieves using the laptop recovery software is to please the tech stories, but what about a case of a person literally being exposed after the cops and a software company got their hands on nude photos she shared with her boyfriend long distance, not realizing the machine was stolen? (She bought it for $ 60 so she should have known, but still). The case goes to court in Ohio in September. The plaintiffs argue that the software company has the right to obtain the location of the computer in order to recover, but that should not have intercepted the nude photos and shared them with the cops. It looks like a legitimate complaint and that the complainants are especially nice not realizing the camera was stolen.
