There's still no sign of 15-year-old Brandon Crisp, who went missing after his parents confiscated his Xbox, but Microsoft Canada added $25,000 to the reward for information leading to his safe return, doubling it. Microsoft is also working with Barrie, Ontario authorities, divulging IP addresses of anyone who may have come in contact with Brandon via Call of Duty 4, his favorite game.
our right to privacy should be absolute. Replace "when they play a game" with "in a time of war" or any other situation. It's not on.
Yes in a time of war the police should have a right to ask a missing teens circle of contacts about him. And it is a hell of a straw man there.
Handing over a a list of IP addresses with very tenuous links to a missing child does not symbolize any sort of link. It's an inappropriate use of technology unless a solid relationship can be identified.
You don't have a right to privacy on a corporate database, which is really all Xbox live is really
That "What if it was YOUR BABY" silliness is just bullshit fear-mongering. Basing our thinking around our worst case scenarios is a sure-fire way to a paranoid.
Some might call it compassion? Maybe I want to live in a world where a person's worst nightmare takes priority over my XBOX privacy?
