    From my experience I would guess: Click fraud.

    As an advertiser you could burn cash at a breathtaking rate for the first few years, and only when it was gone realize that the traffic you had bought was at best worthless and at worst nonexistent.

    The ads worked, and worked very well, for some accounts. Others just tossed their money down the Google hole.

    So will this go to the DOJ as a punitive award, for the so called benefit of the American people(read either as pork pork pork or new cars, Blackberries, and Glocks for star agents), and as usual the actual victims get nothing?

    No, this is good, eh? Now the SEC can go after all the a**holes who engineered the financial collapse.

    Right?
