Adware Maker Sues Anti-Spyware Software Company


Adware maker Zango is fed up with having their "software" removed from people's computers by PC Tools (see Story) without notification.

For those not familiar with Zango, they are the folks that were mixed up with the Myspace worm, allow for the redirection of affiliate traffic, and recently settled with the FTC for $3 million dollars for deceptive adware practices and obstructing the ability to uninstall.

It's a fairly important lawsuit in my opinion and could decide how aggressive anti-spyware makers target adware on computers.
