Taking decisive action against spyware

Harvard Law School and Oxford University are announcing a new effort to eliminate spyware and adware.

A top priority will be the development of a database of testimony from consumers on their experiences with malicious software, which they will be able to submit at the project’s Web site, StopBadware.org. The site will also publicize the names of companies and the methods they use to get marketing and tracking software onto consumers’ machines.

Yeah, that will stop them. And I’m sure nobody will flood the website with bogus entries. What’s next, a letter writing campaign?
