The two kids that the FTC have gone after for jumping on the anti-spyware bandwagon and using fraudulent practises have to pay some hefty fines. See the news here. Thomas Delanoy has to cough up $76,000 and is barred from selling Spyware Assassin. Danilo Ladendorf has to pay $1.9 million but will be allowed to conutinue to sell SpyKiller. Presumably he will not cause those op-ups that fraudulently claim a user's PC is infected.
I just have one question. Were these two allowed to keep their Cadillac Escalades?
