I'm in the final stages of creating a suite of shareware keylogging utilities designed primarily for parents to monitor certain aspects of their childs online activities. Now, my question is not regarding C++, but another aspect of software development, or rather, distribution.
I've never released something like this before, and I'm only now starting to do my research. If someone was to use my software maliciously, which is highly likely when it comes to keylogging software, could the software developer (me) be prosecuted?
As I understand it, I simply provide the software and I am in no way responsible for how someone chooses to use it. I've been looking for a good TOS / disclaimer to include with the program which clarifies this, but I've had no luck.
Would I need some form of license or legal cover to distribute and sell software of this type?
Has anyone developed or been involved in something similar and willing to share their experience or advice?
Aplologies if this is the wrong section of the forum. :S
