    Exclamation Check out who is mentioned in this spyware article
    Very cool that the Associated Press is finally giving attention to the issue. I was surprised at a few of the names mentioned as employing spyware, though ...

    phillyBurbs has the story, of course

    Edited to add ... Check out the mention of our man Benjamin Edelman!

    The usual suspects. Some of them ABW members who maintain that they are anti-spyware.
    Ben is certainly rising to the top as an expert in the field.

    I run a popular download website and am regularly contacted by spyware companies wanting to add their software in my downloads. 180Solutions offered $0.15 per download, but yesterday I got an email from Whenu,

    "We are interested in partnering ******** with WhenU's desktop applications. Partnering with WhenU is a great way to draw additional revenue from your download volume. WhenU has the best monetization - up to $1.00 cents per download while remaining attentive to a positive consumer experience. In other words, a monthly download volume of 10,000 can draw in revenue of about 5K per month."

    My website gets 30,000+ visitors a day. Go figure.

    I believe the AM for Orbitz has professed a negative opinion on adware/spyware here somewhere.
