Zango, formerly ePIPO, 180solutions and Hotbar, was a software company that provided users access to its partners' videos, games, tools and utilities in exchange for viewing targeted advertising placed on their computers. 180solutions contended that the value of the bundled software or the advertisements made up for the inconvenience of the pop-up ads. The value of this trade-off was contested by critics of the adware business model. Zango offers a collection of free games, videos and other downloads. However, in order to access Zango content, users must install the Zango Search Assistant. The Search Assistant is included with Zango downloads and displays ads when users surf the web. The company was formed in June of 2006, as the result of Hotbar and 180solutions merging. Zango content included sports, comedy, dance, erotic videos, online games, and screensavers. Zango continues numerous practices likely to confuse, deceive, or otherwise harm typical users as well as practices specifically contrary to Zango's obligations under its November 2006 settlement with the FTC.
