FTC asked to turn on 180Solutions

Adware maker 180Solutions continues to garner attention. Now a technology watchdog group is asking the FTC to investigate their business practices, something that has been done time and time again.

180solutions said it shares CDT’s “vision of protecting the rights and privacy of consumers on the Internet” and looks forward to continuing a dialogue that already has led to “voluntarily improvements to address every reasonable concern that the CDT has made us aware of.”

Of course they want to continue dialogue. Dialogue is what their lawyers are telling them to continue. Dialogue is a synonym for delay – what lawyers get paid for. And continuing to spew out spyware is what 180Solutions gets paid for – making delays a very convenient proposition. So much for being genuine.
