Traffic Power Misses Appeal Wait Period; Traffic Power Versus SEO Book Case Dismissed

Danny Sullivan reported last week that the Traffic Power case against SEO Book filed last August has been dismissed. The appeal time for Traffic Power has passed, "the case was tossed out on February 13, so the 30 period for appeal has elapsed."

I suspect, Matt Cutts and Google's official confirmation of Traffic Power ban had something to do with it. But I do not have any confirmation from either side.

It is not ethical to publicize to the whole world what was done to a company. It is punishment enough to Ban and cost them thousands of dollars in new revenue - it is NOT neccessary to ADD any more injuries. It is also sad that their clients were Banned, the collective loses in revenue for all involved must have been enormous. Why punish them any further?! What is the big deal about FORGIVING others and showing COMPASSION & MERCY???????

I am not sure who you are pointing this at. I posted this information because it is search engine news related. This was a very popular law suit that is relevant to be posted on a search news site.

"It is not ethical to publicize to the whole world what was done to a company.

First, any loss of revenue is a direct result of their own actions, and should be celebrated far and wide. Second, it isn't just about the criminals - it's about protecting others from any re-offence, by the original perp or others. Never heard of freedom of information? It's time to stop protecting criminals - and start recognising the damage they did to others.
