Claria doesn't want you to know they do pop-ups


Everyone remembers the infamous Gator pop-ups, right? The company was even targeted with lawsuits over their use of pop-ups. Now Gator is Claria and they still do pop-ups, but apparently they don't want you to know that fact before you download their software. Nearly a year ago, spyware/adware expert Ben Edelman ripped Claria's EULA (End User License Agreement). In that write-up, Edelman wrote "Although Gator is in the pop-up advertising business, Gator uses these terms infrequently. The license first mentions the word "pop-up" at page 18 of 63." Just last month Claria was the target of more criticism due to having their pop-up ads delivered through spyware and exploits.
