OJ Simpson and Zango

Two news stories today have me losing it again.  It seems O.J. Simpson isn’t the only one who gets away with breaking the law and continue to wander around freely. Our friends Ben Edelman and Eric Howes have gotten together and published details on how Zango continues to install software without consent even after the FTC fned them 3 millions dollars and made them promise to stop.

The details published today could easily be called “If I did it, here’s how it happen”. Instead of a murder Ben and Eric provide the details on how malware vendor Zango continues to install their software without your permission.

Zango said, “We embrace the new standards and will continue to create, abide by and strive for best practices that protect consumers." (Nov 3, 2006)

O.J. said, “My NFL pension can barely pay my son's tuition. You know, it's very little money.”  ($300,000 a year)

Ben and Eric said, “bad practices continue at Zango -- practices that, in our judgment, put Zango in violation of the key terms and requirements of the FTC settlement.

You know the old saying, "What
goes around comes around" OJ will
always have to look over his shoulder. He is no longer a football legend to be proud of!
Our goverment needs to punish
companies like ZANGO who break their agreements made. Long jail
sentences to company heads and fines of 10% of the gross value of
the business. Thats when it hurts!
I hope our governor elect
can do even more to stop these
companies who do this in our state.
