Tech Groups Back Kaspersky in Fight Against Zango


Tech Groups Back Kaspersky in Fight Against Zango

A broad coalition of technology groups today told a federal appeals court to toss out a lawsuit that adware maker Zango is continuing to pursue against computer security vendor Kaspersky Lab, arguing that to do otherwise would harm consumers and the future of the security software market.


In a "friend of the court" brief filed with the appeals court today, a diverse collection of technology groups rallied behind Kaspersky in support of preserving the lower court ruling. Signatories to the brief include the Business Software Alliance, the Electronic Frontier Foundation (it's not often the BSA and EFF see eye-to-eye on tech issues), McAfee, Sunbelt Software and the Center for Democracy & Technology (CDT).
