    Bunch of lawyers suing all major search engines for click fraud:

    http://www.LostClicks.com/

    News story: 'Lost Clicks' Web Site to Track Click Fraud

    I think they are without a merit, as search engines admit this and try to prevent it in good faith.

    Kind of nice of Yahoo! to post the article, considering they are named in the lawsuit. But then, maybe they too realize this is going nowhere.

    Tracy, yahoo does not scan content for the prnewswire releases, it just posts whatever.

    I think the lawsuit has some validity. I see google ignoring their own terms on site scrapers etc, and this lawsuit is a good thing for affiliates.

    One day a merchant is going to step up and say, hey you networks are making money by screwing me with bho's, and this may be the germ for their movement.

    FindWhat in particular was recently implicated in a DNS Cache Poisioning attack - basically just a clever way of hijacking traffic and sending them to a FindWhat PPC page. Sure... it wasn't FindWhat doing the hijacking, but they didn't seem to do very much about the problem!

    recently, I talked to google about seeing mutiple adwords clicks from the same ip in my logs, they reassured me that their team and algorithm is up to par.

    here's the url they give you:
