Big guns sue Gator
While the Internet Advertising Bureau has backed off on its criticism of scumware provider Gator Corp., a group of heavyweight web publishers including the New York Times, Washington Post, Dow Jones & Co., and others -- most of them members of the IAB -- filed a suit against Gator on Tuesday.
From this article on the suit: http://www.atnewyork.com/news/article.php/1377881
"The plaintiffs, whose charges include trademark and copyright infringement, unfair competition, and unjust enrichment, are asking for a permanent injunction against Gator, and for all of its profits to be returned to the site publishers, along with triple the cost of damages."
They will also ask for a temporary injunction stopping the ads from appearing while the case continues.
According to the complaint, Gator is "a parasite on the Web that free rides on the hard work and investments of Plaintiffs and other Web site owners."
