Stop Forming Groups To Fight Spyware, Start Fighting Spyware
from the just-a-suggestion dept
A year ago, a coalition of firms that had been created mainly to fight spyware fell apart, mainly because parts of the group agreed to let in adware firms who had less than stellar reputations. Since that time, new groups have formed... but that seems like about it. Some are noticing that there are now four major coalitions designed to fight spyware, but it's unclear if any of them are doing anything particularly useful. Of course, having four different groups also leads to confusion and potentially conflicting strategies. Either way, it's not particularly encouraging.
