Pop Up Advertisements And Spyware Collide

A group of publishers sued Gator and have argued the firm's ads violate copyright and trademark law. This lawsuit was brought after Gator published marketing material in which they promised ad buyers placement on the Web sites of specific publications, including The New York Times. Gator has been the subject of other legal proceedings when it faced lawsuits as well as its software being the basis for injunctive relief.

The following questions have been addressed in this article:

Has Gator faced other legal proceedings over these banner advertisements?
Has Gator caused the companies that it provides banners for to face legal proceedings for the use of this software?
Aren’t advertisements protected by the Constitution?
