RetroCoder, makers of Spymon are threatening legal action against Sunbelt Software.
The British company wants Sunbelt, maker of CounterSpy, to stop flagging its SpyMon software as spyware.
RetroCoder charges that Sunbelt has violated the terms of the copyright agreement contained in its software, which specifically excludes anti-spyware research. The full EULA
Yeah I laughed my ass off too. If this ever held up in court, hell would freeze over.
So this software may have legitimate uses, but it can be used for illegal purposes. Sounds like P2P sharing! So why isn't anyone going after these guys? Oh there is no money in it!
Check out the Spymon website. Is it just me or is this site bad?
