I just received a legal notice e-mail regarding Google.

My company, along with millions of others, purchase online advertising with Google, and it seems that its “breached its contracts with advertisers and violated other laws by failing to adequately detect and stop “click fraud” or other invalid or improper clicks on online advertisements”

“Under the settlement, Google will establish a $90 settlement fund”

We thought there was something fishy going on, I wondered why our advertising costs with Google had been steadily going up, with no obvious results.

We’ll be putting a claim in, I’ve been assured that we’ll probably get something back.

$90m huh? You’d think they’d be more careful wouldn’t you?

Oh well, my accountant will be happy at least.

    I will have to forward this on – my company has also advertised with Google – with piss poor results, too.

    Good luck in getting anything over a $1.69. Seems these type of settlements are always more favorable to the offending parties. I really hope I’m wrong here, Karen.

    Lori, they should receive an e-mail from a settlement firm.

    Des, I think we’ll get a bit more because, they wont be giving away money, they are offering freebie advertising. I don’t mind that too much.

    Also, the courts has yet to decide whether the $90m settlement is sufficient for such the injured parties.
