    Who Will Elliot Spitzer Sue Next?
    by Mark Naples, Friday, May 6, 2005 11:30 AM ET
    FOR ANY AMONG YOU WHO'VE been under a rock for the past week, New York Attorney General (AG) Eliot Spitzer sued Intermix, an Internet marketing company on April 28. The New York AG office's petition uses the terms "adware" and "spyware" interchangeably. Interestingly, it also never accuses Intermix of any privacy invasions. I say interestingly for two reasons - one is that Spitzer's office has been positioning him as consumerist at every opportunity, especially as pertains to online commerce. His office has previously sued Victoria's Secret and Barnes & Noble, among others, about their privacy statutes. He has also proposed legislation to prohibit all movement of e-mail addresses or other personally identifiable information (PII) without "affirmative consent." (A term I'll return to later.)
    But, this is not a privacy lawsuit, this Intermix mess. It's more of a disclosure lawsuit, which is why so many people in the privacy community have been scratching their heads about it.
    See, Intermix's disclosure language is almost identical to the disclosure language of just about every other company in their space. So, why go after Intermix? If the attack is on spyware, why not go after a range of companies that have similar business practices?
    "It's a warning shot across the bow to the entire industry," said Eric Howes of Spyware Warrior. Adjunct to his efforts with Spyware Warrior, Howes is a graduate student and instructor in library science at the University of Illinois.
