Ben Edelman has written an extensive treatment on 180Solutions new installation methods.
This blog has followed nonconsensual 180solutions installations at excruciating length. These terrible installations haven’t been hard to find, and they’re truly outrageous. But what about 180’s run-of-the-mill installations? In a piece posted today, Ben Edelman looks at installations 180 itself seems to consider its best — installations 180 promotes on its own blog. Ben points out that 180 is installing on a kids site, that 180 doesn’t disclose that it shows pop-ups, that 180 doesn’t disclose its privacy effects, that 180’s license is unusually hard to read, and that 180 makes false statements to discourage removal.
