From lawyer David Fish:
Yesterday, DirectRevenue closed out another case filed against it. The lawsuit filed on behalf of California residents was granted final approval by a Federal court in the Eastern District of California. …My understanding is that DirectRevenue is still litigating against the New York Attorney General. I am aware of no other consumer-based lawsuits.
I have noticed a trend. It seems to me that as American-based “adware” companies are being sued by consumers and being sued by government agencies and being criticized by bloggers, they are changing their behavior.
