MONTREAL (CP) - Internet search engine Mamma.com Inc. has resurrected a deal to acquire Copernic Technologies Inc. four months after an earlier transaction collapsed because of a securities investigation of the Montreal company.
Mamma.com announced late Wednesday it had signed a new letter of intent to acquire Copernic for cash and shares. Financial terms were not revealed.
In April, Copernic killed a proposed agreement to be taken over by Mamma.com Inc. after the announcement that Mamma.com was the subject of a formal investigation by U.S. securities regulators.
I used mammamediasolutions.com for ad serving but their ads were so bad and untargeted that I dropped them (and they would often break out of the filters set for the account, such as no adult ads, no gambling ads, no "takeover screen" ads, etc).
I have repeatedly observed security exploits syndicated to third-party web sites via Mamma Media ad servers. Bad guy buys traffic from Mamma, Mamma buys traffic from third-party web site. Then user visits third-party web site and gets infected.
Not nice. Goes on for months on end. Mamma must know about this. (How could they not notice?)
