CONTROVERSIAL ADWARE COMPANY 180SOLUTIONS AT the end of last month quietly began offering streams of two shows distributed by Warner Bros. Online. The shows–the soap opera “Deception” and the animated show “Medical Island”–were created specifically for the Web.

Both programs are available online exclusively on 180solutions’ consumer site, Zango.com. Visitors to the site can only view the shows if they agree to download the company’s ad-serving software, which serves up to six pop-up ads daily, based on Web-surfing behavior.

First Sony and a Root Kit. Now Warner Bros and Popup ads. What next? Microsoft and Spyware???
