    • A California district court considered the issue of whether the language of the contract entered into by the advertiser and a Web publisher was such so as to exempt the advertiser from paying fees for fraudulent clicks on its advertisements. The court denied the defendants’ motion to dismiss, finding that meaning of the term “user” was a triable issue. In the case of Lambotte v. IAC/InterActiveCorp, (C.D. Cal. Nov. 4, 2008), plaintiffs were advertisers who entered into a contract for online advertising services with defendant Web publishers. Plaintiffs had an option to obtain such services for a flat monthly fee or to pay on a pay-per-click basis.
