The Center for Democracy and Technology, a Washington-based public advocacy group, is further escalating its fight against spyware and adware. The group on Monday plans to file two complaints with the U.S. Federal Trade Commission against multiple spyware and adware purveyors, a source familiar with the CDT's plan said Friday.

The source described the complaints as "extensive" and said among other things, they allege the targets used a number of deceptive and unfair trade practices.
