"Syndication Fraud" Lawsuit
An online advertiser filed a
lawsuit May 1 in the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey
against Yahoo, alleging that Yahoo's practice of causing online ads to be
displayed via spyware and on typosquatted web sites violates its contract with
advertisers (Crafts by Veronica v. Yahoo! Inc., D.N.J., No 12:06-cv-01985,
complaint filed May 1, 2006). If the class action is certified, any Yahoo!
customer in the United States would be a member of the class.
