different honeypots - different issues

There has been some discussion about the legal issues of
honepyots. While no one knows exactly how these issues
will work out (there is no precedence) one thing I would
like to point out, what applys to one honeypot does not
apply to another.

When discussing legal issues, people tend to focus on
Honeynets. Honeyents are a high-interaction, research
honeypots, designed to capture extensive amounts of
information. In contrast, low-interaction, production
honeypots, such as NetFacade, Specter, or Honeyd only
capture small amounts of information, no more then an
IDS system.

So, when discussing legal issues, you may want to clarify
the type of honeypot in question.
