FTC: Pop-up Ads, Failure to Disclose Rootkits Are Bad Business

| | Comments (0)

An interesting interview with FTC Chairman Deborah Platt Majoras. However, compare and contrast with the reaction to Direct Revenue being fined just $1.5 million Dollars:

FTC Commissioner Jon Leibowitz, the sole vote against the settlement, said the $1.5 million fine "is a disappointment because it apparently leaves Direct Revenue's owners lining their pockets with more than $20 million from a business model based on deceit."

...is it just me, or should more people be thinking the same thing as this guy?
