Schwarzenegger signs California anti-spyware bill

California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger signed an anti-spyware bill on Tuesday banning unauthorized installation of deceptive software that hides in personal computers and secretly monitors user activity.

The bill clears the way for consumers to sue responsible parties for actual damages, said state Sen. Kevin Murray, a Democrat who introduced the legislation in February.
