Virtual Legality has become (a bit) known for our deep dives into terms of service, data policies, and the like, so it was no surprise when a number of folks reached out to ask about a privacy policy change covering open source audio capture application "Audacity".

What came as a bit more of a surprise was just how right (at least some of) those complaints turned out to be.

Oh the audacity, today...in Virtual Legality.
