    Overstock.com filed the first lawsuit under Utah's new anti-spyware law, targeting competitor Smart Bargains for advertising through Claria's pop-up ad software

    Thanks Overstock for taking that step!

    "We believe that Overstock's intention is to avoid and restrict competition by impeding consumers from comparison shopping on the Internet," Smart Bargains CEO Carl Rosendorf said in a statement.
    BULLSHOOT! Do you suppose he really believes this ignorant statement?

    It's pretty obvious Smart Bargains just wants to feed off the work of others. LOSERS! I hope they get fried in court!

    I'm not a big fan of Overstock's, but I do believe this is a good step in stopping this pop-up "comparison shopping" as a pseudo acceptable business practice.
