What are the differences between KuneAgi and a cost-free collaborative software such as Google Wave?

Google Wave is an on-line co-operative workgroup software provided for free (for the time being) to Internet users by the well-known firm Google, based in the United States of America. Google's business model is based upon targeted advertising, that is, on the selling to private firms or to public administrations of information on the tastes, the topics of interest and the opinions of Internet users. The United States of America adopted in October 2001, and then perpetuated in 2006 the Patriot Act, which provides the US Administration and its intelligence agencies (its secret services) an unlimited access to private data stored on its territory.

This business model and this legal environment lead us to the conclusion that Google Wave, despite its undeniable ergonomic qualities, does not present the guarantees necessary to be usable either by political organisations (legitimately keen on not being harassed or threatened in cases when their thought would not comply with the current US political doxa) or by private firms (wary of preserving the confidentiality of internal discussions).
