    The Can Spam Act plus the "Do Not call list" of the Telemarketing Industry was poo poed by the networks and the IAB/DMA. Guess the Adwhores are feeling like the Nuke bombs of consumer outrage are falling on them. Next up come the sypware info peddlers and the BHO popup parasites taking it in the shorts. Nice move networks gutting the income of your legit affiliates as even the SERPs want your spammers eliminated from the mix.

    Serious butt kissing is in order for affiliates who actually build shopper friendly sites with no tricks for clicks. Focused and targeted traffic might just command a slotting fee paid by the AM firms seeking a flea bath. Time for considering launching a legit Safe Haven Sales Network

    Mike, if you would have read the article, you would see they were not prosecuted using the spam friendly national can-spam law. Can-spam is pro spam, not anti-spam.

    Ya gotta love the ricco aspect of it. I bet the lawyers were high-fiving each other when they realized they could use that in this case.
