Last week in Pennsylvania, student Blake Robbins and his family filed a lawsuit against Lower Merion School District, because the district allegedly used the webcams on school-issued laptops to photograph students in their homes, without the students’ knowledge or consent. Since then, a number of students have come forward saying that the green lights on their webcams were mysteriously turned on at different times while the school district itself has issued a statement claiming that they only turned on student Webcams 42 times and only to track those which were reported lost or stolen. Meanwhile the FBI is investigating the school district.

The case has set the Web buzzing about the limits of privacy in the digital age and the rights of schools who give notebook to their students to monitor what students do on them.
