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 see a trickle of traffic from them on some of my client sites -- slow but always there.

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).

Most of their traffic is from the middle east.

I also used mammamediasolutions.com. The banners load way to slow. I had to ask tech support a couple of times and they say they are working on it

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?)
