As the deadline approaches for firms to accept a settlement between Internet advertisers and the Google search engine over click-fraud claims, nearly a dozen complaints about the deal have been entered in an Arkansas circuit court.

But Galen Workman of Ozdachs Consulting in San Francisco said the settlement would shift the burden of proof onto class members because they will be required to certify the number of bogus clicks.

"I am a small Google Advertiser and a believer that I have been forced by Google to pay for bogus clicks to my site I manage for my consulting clients. The proposed settlement fails to address our damages and the damages of those in my situation," Workman wrote to the court.
