Somehow I don't think an alwil page would have other products advertised on it.

avast! is owned by ALWIL Software...


EDIT:
It is actually the avast! reseller for the Czech Republic:

Not owned by alwil software, but a reseller...

It's a fake webpage.
Can't Alwil sue it? Will it worth?


Sorry. Corrected.

It is not fake - it just belongs to a different company (our Czech reseller).

But do your reseller have the same name of your company?
Does it belongs to you? I mean, is an "internal" reseller?

Only the first word is the same ;)
The companies have a history I believe (but I don't remember that far back); today, however, they do not have many connections (appart from the reselling thing, of course).
