From the article...Washington state settles with Oregon man in spyware lawsuitWashington state has settled a spyware lawsuit with an Oregon man, who will pay nearly $84,000 in fines and consumer restitution for e-mail marketing of bogus anti-spyware software called "spyware cleaner."State Attorney General Rob McKenna said Tuesday that this is the first settlement of the state's first lawsuit under its new anti-spyware act, which the Legislature passed last year, and one of the first spyware lawsuits in the country."Let this be a warning to other online advertisers — when you attempt to harm or deceive, you will pay in Washington," McKenna said in a statement. "We will not tolerate those who try to profit by preying on consumers' fears of spyware and other malware."http://www.oregonlive.com/newsflash/regional/index.ssf?/base/news-14/1145417961307780.xmlßillƒ
