In an update to this story, Gamma developer Martin J. Münch told us:

> We are currently in active discussions with various human rights 
> organizations to design and enforce a possible "code of conduct" for 
> companies like us.

Unfortunately, he declined to say which HROs are part of this. Only that 
currently no german HRO is involved.

It's probably superfluous to say, but a "code of conduct" for 
surveillance software like this works like an "approved by HRO" cachet, 
therefore legitimizing and spreading the use of state malware.

Does anyone know which HROs are talking with Gamma about this?

I'd like to get in touch with them. In private, if wanted.
