Our friends at BleepingComputer seem to be in a bit of a pickle.

Enigma Software, the publisher of SpyHunter anti-malware, has filed a defamation lawsuit against BleepingComputer ostensibly because BC has been posting bad reviews of SpyHunter in order to drive sales towards MalwareBytes. Which if you read into it, the so-called "review" is actually a forum post about removing the software from quietman7. He backs up his claims, and a quick Google search brings up pile upon pile of complaints against ESG, but ESG doesn't seem to realize that. This isn't the first time they've used legal action, among other things, to back up their crap software.

I'm expecting (read: hoping) this suit to get thrown right out. It's simply ridiculous. It's not even an official review, for christ's sake.

BC is asking for help here if anyone here feels interested in donating to the cause.

Sadly this is just one example of the efforts of "big outfits" bullying smaller...; and seeking to prevent criticisms which they don't like...

TTIP - being much promoted by big corporation/multi-nationals etc. - will be even worse if they succeed in ramming that down the throats of everyone... It gives them (its supporters - the big companies etc.) freedom to sue any government or whomever, if a decision is made by that government etc. which goes against the interests of the big (bully) boys..
