    Investors Bet Against Stock in Harvard Professorís Blog (Ben Edelman)
    Ben is still at it.
    In the Jan. 28 blog, entitled ďThe Darker Side of Blinkx,Ē Benjamin Edelman, an associate professor of business administration, said his research indicated that the London-based company used deceptive software to inflate traffic counts and capture commissions. Edelman wrote that he prepared the research for an unnamed client.
    Blinkx are online video ads and have been accused of click fraud.
    In 2006, after Edelman wrote about Zango, the company agreed to pay $3 million to settle a Federal Trade Commission complaint that it used unfair and deceptive methods to put advertising software on consumersí computers. Blinkx is using Zangoís software, Edelman said in his blog post.
