Pls dont call me paranoid but i suspect this whole lawsuit is a honoust as some of the clicks i get.
This 90 million USD is peanuts for google. Its a drop in the ocean for them. If you look at their revenue and you then take even a small % of that for fraudelent clicks then the 90 million is still only a small fraction of that amount.
I am a european living in europe and i am told that some US lawyer put all advertisers in a class action suit and if you didnt opt out 2 months ago then you have no other choice as being part of this suit. I am sorry, this is typical. I never asked for this suit, i never asked you to represent me and now what happens is that I can send some document and get a few bucks but I cant sue google myself.
Is it only me or doesnt it look like this whole law suit was in the best interest of google. They now pay chicken fee and take away the rights of almost all adwords users to sue them except for those who opted out and realized what trick was being played. Why the heck did the lawyers go for so little and then represent every adword user around the globe.
This is unbelievable. We are now forced to stay in a claim that we have nothing to do with and has not change of retrieving what we were really overcharged. Dont give me this crap that I should have opted out. No one has my permission to deal on my behald. Normally you ask people to opt in and not include them and tell them to opt out.
Ladies and Gentlemen, wouldnt this be the best legal and financial move in modern history? Google pays a few bucks and in return they receive full protection by the legal system against any claims that most likely be a lot more then a lousy 90 million.

Listen, i got some spam looking emails and paid no attention to it.
And that's the U.S. legal system's fault?
The opt-out deadline is over. I have a couple threads here I have been trying to get going to no avail about the class action suit nuts and bolts, not the ethics of it. Figured everyone but me must have these questions answered.
1) What is the word on the the court approval of the settlement, hearing was scheduled for 7/24,25?
Evidence it has been approved,
2) Is there any ongoing discussion about the estimation of fraud figure needed in filling out the claim forms, for which the submission deadline is Friday, 8/4.
