    Re: * SpyBot Getting Hassled *

    Hi Bruce:
    I'm confused. I just went to http://www.spybot.com. All it has is a download link which, when clicked, takes you to the Spybot - Search & Destroy webpage. I saw nothing about registration.

    Two different pages Phil. The Home Page and the news page Bruce is referencing.

    * SpyBot Getting Hassled *

    Why don't the scum just stay with their spam and porn?? <img src=/S/aflame.gif border=0 alt=aflame width=16 height=16>

    Direct quote from the SpyBot home page:

    "InBox Inc. has registered the domain spybot.com and makes it look like people would have to register there to get a copy of Spybot-S&D. Spybot-S&D is free to use and doesn't need any registration, so please don't be fooled by spybot.com! In addition, InBox Inc. has announced to get a trademark on the name Spybot, and threatens legal consequences, including the threat to stop us from using the name Spybot - Search & Destroy. Until this situation has been settled, I asked you to boykott spybot.com and InBox Inc.!

    Second, the domain safer-networking.com has been registered by a dialer company. As you may now, Safer Networking is the name of another project of mine to offer Spybot-S&D downloads and mirror services. Please understand that safer-networking.com is a completely different thing!"

    But where is the problem? The newspage says that spybot.com is registered to a site that pretends that you must register to get Spybot - S&D. I can't find any site that says that I must register.

    Hi, Phil ~

    You are right, Phil - that's new - it wasn't like that before. Perhaps there have been some positive developments?

    For more info, try this link to a post on the Hare's Lair website.
    ....There's a number at the end of the link that might be a session number. I f the link doesn't work for you, go to the Hare's Lair main page and navigate to.....Spyware > Privacy, etc. > Spybot Issue...an update.

    Have a Great day!!!

    Hi, Ken ~

    Nice find in this unraveling drama! Here are 2 more good links further expounding upon the situation:<UL><LI>Broadband Reports
    <LI>Spyware Info[/list]The grim reality is Patrick did not cover his assets and unfortunately can have the rug pulled out from underneath him unless he recruits rather wily counsel. The verbal intention of not pursuing litigation means absolutely nothing. <img src=/S/sad.gif border=0 alt=sad width=15 height=15>

    I don't think he needs particularly wily counsel, but I'm not going to practice law on the forum.

    I did have to "out" the InboxCop guy: http://www.spywareinfo.com/forums/index.ph...12&t=7210&st=78

    Wow! That was a good read. I then worked my way back and it was even better.
