Direct Revenue filed to dismiss the New York AG’s lawsuit a while back, but I’m not sure many have seen the document:
Direct Revenue claims that the New York Attorney General's lawsuit is over “historic” practices that were “commonplace” at the time, and “utilized by such well-known companies as Google and Ask Jeeves”. Direct Revenue explains that it advertises on behalf of “mainstream companies like JPMorgan Chase, Priceline, and United Airlines."

This one is funny:
So it was free, it was ok? And consumers “affirmately desired to obtain” this software? And they received the software and ads “as promised”? Lollers!!!!
Of course, they are trying to argue a technicality. We’ll just have to see what happens.
