Cat-herding Posted by Sean @ 12:47 GMT

Zango and the USA's Federal Trade Commission (FTC) reached a settlement last Friday. Zango agreed to pay the FTC $3 million. The agreement also contains language strongly clarifying what is required as consent from installers of Zango's software. See Part V in this PDF.


Zango for its part, wants to raise the bar and to hold their affiliates to a higher standard. Perhaps we're willing to give them the benefit of doubt for the time being…

But it raises the question: Isn't trying to manage such affiliates like cat-herding?
