The group hopes that the definition will ultimately provide all users — from individuals to large enterprises — with the knowledge of why some programs on their computers may be identified as unwanted and then assist them in deciding whether to remove or block those programs.

Yeah, sure – let’s all agree on a consistent definition that all the spyware blockers will use. You know who will be most interested in this definition? The MAKERS OF SPYWARE
