Who's responsible for spyware?

According to some of the antispyware researchers I've spoken to, one trick to eliminating the specter of adware/spyware (hereafter, simply spyware) is to devalue this new economy. If we can take the money out of the spyware industry, the participants should, in theory, go elsewhere, and spyware should, in theory, taper off over time.

Unfortunately, taking the money out spyware is going to be a very hard proposition to sell. Security Watch: Small business - CNET reviews
