WhenU Feels Utah's Wrath
WhenU has sued the state of Utah over is Spyware Control Act which makes it illegal for software to be installed on a computer that monitors web activity and sends information about that activity elsewhere. The law, which takes effect next month and carries $10,000 fines, also makes pop ups illegal. In Utah's eyes, WhenU violates both sections of the law. WhenU disagrees arguing the law violates its constitutional right to advertise. In Adrant's eye, anytime one ad is laid on top of another without consumer control, there's something wrong.
