Hi,
a few weeks ago I turned to the US Embassy here and brought the parasites problems to their attention.
Today now I got an email from there, which I enclude in German and try a translation as good as I can:

Es ist sehr aergerlich, dass durch die von Ihnen geschilderte Praxis den Betroffenen Einnahmensverluste entstehen und damit evtl. ihre Existenz bedroht ist. Sie koennten sich mit Ihrer Beschwerde an die U.S. Federal Trade Commission wenden, die sich mit dem Problem von Parasiteware befasst. Die Internetadresse lautet http://www.ftc.gov

Mit freundlichen Gruessen

Public Correspondence Office
US-Botschaft Berlin

Translation:

It is very annoying that those ( affiliates) have a loss in income and they perhape lose their existence. You are able to turn with your problem to the US Trade Commission which is handling the parasite issue. The addr. is:

================================================

I already turned to the FTC in January and I encourage all of you to use their complaint form on this issue.
