 Google faces lawsuit in South Korea over AdSense account termination for alleged click fraud

The Korean Fair Trade Commission (KFTC) has asked Google to rewrite sections of its AdSense contracts which empower Google to unilaterally cancel any deal. These sections are considered unfair under Korean law.

Humor University placed Google AdSense ads on its website, but from October to November 2005 did not get paid. When it complained to Google it was told its contract had been terminated because of suspicious activities ("click fraud"). The university then made a complaint to the KFTC.

  • Kim Tae-gyu, Google Faces Lawsuit Over Online Ads, Korea Times:
    "Google, the world's primary Internet search engine, is likely to face a damages suit in South Korea in connection with its context-based online advertisements, dubbed AdSense."
