    Do you have a story about "spyware," "snoopware," or "trespassware," particularly software that piggy-backed on another program that now just won't go away? If so, we want to hear your story!

    CDT believes that the US Federal Trade Commission has jurisdiction over companies who entered into shaky End User License Agreements (EULAs) with consumers and then won't let them leave. We want to collect stories; try out and catalog some of the more egregious cases for ourselves; and then file complaints with the FTC on behalf of everyone who complained.

    "Spyware," "snoopware," or "tresspassware" are annoying and intrusive programs loaded on your computer by a variety of means. Once there, they can collect information, use computing resources and/or resist un-installation.
