But of course this wont stop companies in adding spyware to their products. I can understand that they want to get their money somewhere but this is definitely not the way to do it. Hurray for people like this Dr. Damn & the people behind Kazaa-lite!

The fact that ad-stripped versions of P2P programs are being distributd over those very P2P networks should really help them in court. “Really, we can’t control what they trade your honor. Look, they even trade an illegallly altered version of our software on our own site!”

AddWare/SpyWare is the SPAM of the 2000’s. Lets hope something gets done about this menace. We still have SPAM. :C On that subject, does ANYONE! actually read that SPAM shit ???
