EDIT: Remember this action is on a State level and that means Illinois. With 51 states left to sue them, I can hardly wait. Imagine having to defend yourself in EVERY STATE in the USA. Am I dreaming? I think NOT. Direct Revenue has another suit against it in the fine state of California. See:

Guss what!

You loose !!!
Nice find DUDE!

Like I said in my previous post...

An interesting sliver from your posted aticle link:

"Spitzer's lawsuit filed in Manhattan also names Direct Revenue's former CEO, Josh Abram. Spitzer said Abram told a distributor in an e-mail that "we have a very stealthy version of our adware product which we 're happy to give u . . . Don't worry. If we do a deal * a build together * these will not be caught."

Thoughts: Even FORMER infectors can land up in a legal mess over their previous Spyware distribution. AND, the smoking gun which means the email this geek sent.

I'm having a great day!
