    "The Federal Trade Commission announced on Wednesday that it has sued a
    company it says secretly installed spyware and adware purporting to be
    peer-to-peer file sharing software. The company offered claims such as
    "Download music without fear," and "Don't let the record companies win,"
    but in reality did things like rewriting search engine results and
    generating pop-up ads, the agency said."
