Microsoft has just been sued over its Windows Genuine Advantage tool. You can read all about it in Todd Bishop's article in SeattlePI. It was filed in California, and seeks to be a class action lawsuit, similar to the Sony rootkit ones:

 

A computer user is suing Microsoft Corp. over the company's Windows Genuine Advantage anti-piracy tool, alleging that it violates laws against spyware.

 

The suit by Los Angeles resident Brian Johnson, filed this week in U.S. District Court in Seattle, seeks class-action status for claims that Microsoft didn't adequately disclose details of the tool when it was delivered to PC users through the company's Automatic Update system.
