Gimme’ My Piece of The Canadian Pie!

From the Department of Justice:

“Google Inc. has agreed to forfeit $500 million for allowing online Canadian pharmacies to place advertisements through its AdWords program targeting consumers in the United States, resulting in the unlawful importation of controlled and non-controlled prescription drugs into the United States.”

This is one the largest forfeitures in US history, and while $500 million is a drop in the ocean compared to the $30 billion that AdWords pulls in for Google each year, it illustrates just how seriously the Obama Administration is taking online compliance issues. Publishers and networks take note.

A THOUGHT: The internet is not a tool geared only to U.S. Citizens. Many foreigners use the service just as well. Therefore, the ads Google allowed were for cyberspace, so the U.S. has no rightful claim to that $500 million. Just another way the Obama Administration is stealing from Corporate America.

About Chase Morgan
Chase Morgan is just your average, ordinary All-American writer. Chase began writing several years ago, but never published anything until the "Are You Friggen' Kidding Me?" blog launched in August of 2009. Chase simply got tired of standing around and just observing all of the craziness in the world, so this anxious writer sat down and wrote the first "Are YOu Friggen' Kidding Me?" article on August 19th, 2009. Now, any time something makes Chase say, "Are You Friggen' Kidding Me?", the issue get's transformed into an article. Chase is currently single, homeless and living under a bridge in South Florida.
