180solutions sues allies over adware

The advertising software maker alleges that two partners loaded its ad-serving software onto people's PCs without first getting their consent.

180solutions on Monday filed a lawsuit alleging that two of its partners loaded its ad-serving software onto people's computers without first getting their consent. The lawsuit, filed in a Superior Court in Washington state, claims that Internext Media and its distribution partner violated an agreement with 180Solutions. Aztec Marketing distributes Internext Media's Web browser toolbar.

180Solutions, based in Bellevue, Wash., is seeking monetary relief and the immediate removal of its programs from Aztec's systems.
