Someone created a thread regarding what poker assistant software is or is not helpful and / or legal. As a result, I found the following on the poker stars website.
I have nothing on my PC that I would need to hide, but I am not sure that I like the idea of Poker Stars (or any other poker site for that matter) scanning my PC. I presume that it can't be illegal, or they would not be so open about the fact that they do it. However, even in the interest of keeping their games fair, I am not sure if this is either morally acceptable or justifiable. Does anyone have any opinions on the subject?<LI class=que>What steps are you going to take to prevent players from using prohibited programs? <LI class=ans>We are going to look to see if any of those programs is running on a player's computer. If we find one of the prohibited programs, we will alert the player that he is running a prohibited program and tell him what the program is. We will ask that he stop running the program immediately. If he complies, fine. If not, then we will prevent the PokerStars client from running on his computer. <LI class=que>Are you going to look for anything else on players' computers? <LI class=ans>Absolutely not. Our sole interest is in protecting our players and our site from programs that we believe are bad for the integrity and fairness of our games.
