US FTC: Advertisers may face public humiliation over adware

Unread postby JimW » February 10th, 2006, 11:12 pm

This ZDNet article reports on a presentation made by an FTC Commisioner at an event hosted by the Anti-Spyware Coalition. Summary:
Companies could find themselves put up for public humiliation by the U.S. Federal Trade Commission if they continue to advertise through insidious ad-serving software.


There's a fine quote from the FTC Commission chairman at the end of the article:
"The dissemination of harmful, unremovable programs that frustrate consumers' ability to control their own computers is digital carjacking, and we intend to vigorously prosecute it," Majoras said.
