"Syndication Fraud" Lawsuit against Yahoo

An online advertiser filed a class action 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.
