Florida Attorney General Investigating AzoogleAds.com


The Office of the Attorney General of Florida, Economic Crimes Division, has launched an investigation of AzoogleAds.com for "unfair and deceptive trade practices regarding online ringtone offers."



Free Stuff

While I'm not a lawyer and don't pretend to play one on the interent, I am an azoogle affilaite and have to say last year they took a really hard stance on making people take down/change all ringtone landing pages that used the word free. To be honest they were actually bordering on annoying being as strict as they were. They had a zero tollerance policy. Even completely disallowing it when it was the name of a particular track on an album such #10 on this Darryl Worley Album

This is funny...

Comment removed by myself.

But before their hard stance on it...

I would guess that what the AG's office is investigating is Azoogle's practices [url=http://web.archive.org/web/*/http://apply.blinko.com*]before[/url] the restriction on the use of "free".

From their terms: No Charge

From their terms:

No Charge Ringtone offer is for ringtone compatible mobile devices on AT&T, Cingular, Dobson/Cellular One, Sprint and T-Mobile only. No Charge Ringtone offer requires subscribing to Berggi's monthly club and horoscope subscription service ("Combo Service"). AT&T, Cingular, Dobson/Cellular One, Sprint and T-Mobile customers will receive the Combo Service at $13.98/month ($9.99 club; $9.99 horoscope). Alltel, Verizon and Boost customers will only receive Berggi's monthly horoscope subscription service ("Horoscope Service") at $9.99/month for Alltel and Verizon customers and $5.99/month for Boost customers, and are not eligible for the No Charge Ringtone offer.

I hope they update the dictionaries to cover the new meaning of "No Charge".
