|So, does Google admit to having a higher fraud rate than their rivals' systems? |
Nope, it is a settlement, not an admission. They agreed to pay to make the claim against them go away.
|And, if such a settlement may be considered as a concession of such, then how liable does this leave them to future litigation? |
It cannot be considered such a consession, and the courts would not allow it to be considered as such in future cases.
|I mean, if they conceded that they have suffered fraudulent activity for the persons involved in this case, then they must concede the same in and of proportions to others' clients accounts, no? |
Nope, since they did not concede that point, they agreed to pay the money to make the case go away.
Anyway, the case is not about how much click fraud there is, it is about whether the companies are doing enough to combat it.
