Re: Engaging in piracy? or join swarms to catch pirates?
At one of the previous places I worked for they would sit you down with the owners in the conference room with a printed log and talk to you about what you were doing on company time. They were pretty lenient until it got really out of hand. I couldn't believe they were keylogging everyone until some coworkers started talking about being careful of what you do while at that job.
The place where I work right now is pretty lenient too. P2P is a huge no-no because if "copyright police" nails someone, the entire company gets sued. As far as other stuff goes (as long as it's not illegal), it usually gets looked at the other way if it doesn't get in the way of your productivity. However, if management and coworkers notice that someone is slacking off and not pulling their weight, logs could be used against them. So if someone had stuff to do on any given day and none of it was touched, while at the same time logs show that that someone was on Facebook all day long, that someone will have a sit-down with the higher-ups.
Key-logging is pretty low, but it's not like they don't have right to do it.
Ask me no questions, and I'll tell you no lies...
