Hewlett-Packard, a company accused of spying on its board, is co-sponsor of an award for privacy. It's called the Privacy Innovation Award. Nominees are being accepted to honor, "unique contributions to the privacy industry." The award's Web site says there's not enough recognition for organizations that have "embraced privacy as a competitive advantage." HP's co-sponsor says the company is good on privacy issues, once you set aside the acts of its board.
