    A seller of online marketing tools said on Wednesday it sued Google, charging that the web search giant has failed to protect users of its advertising program from “click fraud”, costing them at least $5 million.

    Click Defense filed its lawsuit, which also seeks class action status, on June 24 in US District Court in San Jose, California.

    It is a fraud, but I don't think google must be held responsible.
    However I think that google owes it to come up with a solution (since they always come up with such neat ideas)
    maybe count all clicks from a single ip address on a single day as just one?
    Its like I'm hosting a dinner and pay the caterers by the plate, and some unkind people use 10-15 plates for no reason. While the caterer is not responsible, it must still be accounted correctly.

    This cant be fraud!!!! its ridiculous!!!! What about all the billboards on the streets.....everyone who reads them doesn't necessarily do business with the advertised company!!!! The only diff is that billboards dont charge a dollar for every car that passes by. Google should actively monitor all clicks from the same IP but you cant count all the clicks from one IP as a single click. If this is the case then people with routers will all count as a single person.
