Default Court records show some dirty tactics

New York Attorney General Eliot Spitzer submitted documents to the court to support his lawsuit against Direct Revenue. They show that Direct Revenue produced software to delete competing adware programs, hired a private investigator to locate an anti-spyware researcher who didn't have nice things to say about Direct Revenue, and Direct Revenue did everything possible to make their software stealthy.

This link is to a rather interesting two-page article about how far Direct Revenue is alleged to have gone to make money.
