Symantec Corp., which makes Internet security software, on Tuesday said it filed a lawsuit against an Internet company Hotbar.com to seek the right to label some of its program files as adware. The company said it is not seeking monetary damages as part of the lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court in San Jose, Calif. Instead, Symantec said it wants to be able to help its customers remove adware programs from their computers that are linked to Hotbar.com's products. A spokesman for Hotbar.com could not be immediately reached for comment. The New York-based company develops a variety of products aimed at Internet users, including e-mail tools and desktop toolbars.
