Humor University, Korean Site, Sues Google over AdSense Ban

A DigitalPoint Forums thread points to a Digital Chosun article that reports a Korean site is suing Google for banning them in AdSense, and not paying.

Google, the U.S. web search giant, faces a W30 million (US$1=W945) lawsuit in Korea. Humor University, a local humor website, announced on Sunday that it filed a suit against Google demanding W20 million in payments and W10 million in damages. Humor University said the American firm allegedly failed to pay for three months of online ads.

Google said they are not paying Humor University because the clicks were fraudulent and have banned the account. "Humor University said Google never provided evidence to back up those claims."

I doubt Google will lose this one, but this should be fun to chat about.

I found this post while browsing the net. Missed it at digital point when it was discussed It's interesting though that while it was inconceivable for anyone to sue adsense about a ban and win, two years ago, it now seems achievable. remember the Aaron Greenspan story?
