English is not my native language, and I'm having a hard time being convinced that the following usage of the word "counterexample" is correct.
In this age of ever-eroding privacy, the new GoodCompany™ website wants to be a counterexample on how to build a website that protects your data instead of sharing it with third parties.
To me, it sounds like: the good guy is a counterexample of being a good guy.
If both parts of the sentence are synonyms (e.g. good and good, as opposed to good and bad), shouldn't the "counterexample" word be replaced with "example" instead? Thanks.
