Zango sues PC Tools for labeling them as spyware

(Via Spam Notes) Zango software, formerly known as 180 Solutions, is suing anti-spyware software vendor PC Tools Pty Ltd because their software identifies Zango as spyware and removes it from the client's system.

Zango has been much in the news over the last couple of years. Most recently in November, 2006 when they were fined $3M by the FTC for installing spyware on user's computers. It looks like Zango is trying to reform their reputation, and are suing anti-spyware corporations in order to purge their record.
