CJ Settlement case

Discussion in 'Commission Junction' started by DJD, Aug 1, 2008.

  1. #1
    "If you joined or were a member of the affiliate marketing networks operated by ValueClick, Inc., Commission Junction, Inc. and/or Be Free (collectively, “Defendants”), between April 20, 2003 and the present, you may be a class member in Settlement Recovery Center et al. v. ValueClick, Inc. et al., No. 2:07-cv-02638-FMC-CTx, a lawsuit which is pending in the Central District of California. The Settlement Notice informs you of the Court's certification of a class for settlement purposes; the nature of the claims alleged; your right to participate in, or exclude yourself from, the class; a proposed settlement; and how you can claim an award of advertising credits under the settlement or object to the settlement.

    The proposed settlement will resolve claims that Defendants failed to adequately monitor Commission Junction’s Network for the use by third parties of software that does not comply with Commission Junction’s (“CJ”) Publisher Code of Conduct and that is intended to steal or divert commissions from publishers on CJ’s network (“Non-compliant Software”), failed to adequately monitor or prevent third parties from engaging in the theft or “hijacking” of commissions from Advertisers and Publishers on CJ’s Network, and failed to make sufficient disclosures regarding the existence of Non-compliant Software and commission theft, resulting in losses to both advertisers and publishers on the CJ Network.

    The proposed settlement will provide a monetary recovery to eligible class members. For class members that currently maintain an account on the CJ Network will receive payment through payments or credits deposited or applied to their CJ accounts; eligible class members that no longer have accounts on the Commission Junction Network will receive a check for an equal amount.

    If you are a member of the class, your legal rights are affected by whether you act or do not act. You should review the Settlement Notice as soon as possible as there are several important deadlines that you must meet to take certain actions in connection with this proposed settlement. In particular, the deadline for filing an objection or excluding yourself from the proposed settlement is September 30, 2008. For further information, please refer to the Settlement Notice.

    It means that good ole CJ has been frauding advertisers & publishers by controlling the logs of the traffic in and out.

    Surprise, surprise.

    The lawsuit is for some fired employee's teaming up against cj because they have proof of the owners rigging the deal.

    Yeah, I just checked my email, and I got the same thing.

    They have been nailed. I always expected it, because they CONSISTENTLY REFUSED to deny any such activity when I was with them. I asked them flat out - no response. So I pulled them from all my stuff. When you get zero money for lots and lots of ad servings, something is wrong.

    That old admonition to "work harder", and "you just don't know what you are doing", has finally proven to be PURE BS. WE were being ROBBED BLIND. I am signing up for the settlement.

    I am starting to wonder why Share-a-sale has not paid me a damned penny, either.

    I got this and dismissed it as spam! lol

    As a publisher, where do we stand? I suspect CJ haven't put through several sales of mine recently, and in the past. In fact, some recent transaction that I KNOW went through via CJ aren't showing.

    I think it is spam. What puzzles me now is why have so many CJ members got it? Strange. I got one too.

    It could not be spam, because I got the email only to my CJ email accounts... But CJ is here to stay, even though they shave commissions, they do not do as much as other companies...

    It's not spam -- it's legit. I'm going to look into it, though CJ has always been a fairly small part of my revenue stream. (Maybe this is why!)

    Unless you're involved in the court case, my take on it is that the outcome could result in all logs being shown. No? *shrugs shoulders smilie*
