Accused Of Deception, Adware Firm Tries 'Deception' A Warner Bros Soap
AN ONLINE COMPANY THAT HAS been asked to clean up its act, is now using a soap - and other programming - to market controversial adware software to consumers. 180solutions has quietly begun offering streams of two Warner Bros shows - the soap opera "Deception" and animated series "Medical Island" - created specifically for the Web.
The programs are available on 180solutions' consumer site, Zango.com, where users can view the shows only after they agree to download the company's ad-serving software, which serves up to six pop-up ads daily, based on Web-surfing behavior.
