Zango Wins Lawsuit, Dismisses Users Who Can't Uninstall Its App As 'Background Noise'
from the such-concern-for-their-users dept
It's not clear from Zango's announcement (yes, they announced it) why this case was thrown out -- but it's pretty clear that there's something in their software that pisses off an awful lot of people who have it and have no idea how they got it. It's hard to see how that's something to cheer about. In the press release, the CEO of the company calls such complaints "occasional distractions" and "background noise of a small group of fixated critics" while another company exec claims that this dismissal confirms "that our innovative business model is entirely legitimate." Both claims seem to be stretching the truth. The dismissal of a single lawsuit (and the details are missing as to why it was dismissed) doesn't necessarily justify the business model -- and the fact that the company views some pretty serious, and very detailed, complaints from an awful lot of people as "background noise" should hopefully alert advertisers that this is not a company to work with.
