    No ... what I meant here is there anyone solely depends on google adsense income? If so, how many will get affected if this happened. I know it won't.

    It's like asking what if Google didn't exist, what would you do? Well, since Google does exist, maybe that is what is worth spending time thinking about.

    Google would get rid of Adsense if it didn't make money. Since it has been shown to make money, why drop it? In fact, Yahoo and MSN are probably going to copy Adsense.

    We're at the ground floor of a new [link=http://web-browsers.blogeasy.com/]business model[/link] for web pages. Let's focus on that!

    I'd be more worried about google banning legitimate accounts for no good reason! With the lawsuit b.s. going on, and the publicity its getting, I see a trend coming. I think you will start hearing more people saying "I got banned from adsense" in the very near future.

    Google is a publicly traded company, and therefore is watched very closely. Regardless of whether the current class action suit has any merit, the market is watching google now, and google will be looking to show that they are working to prevent fraud. Unfortunately, I feel that many legitimate adsense publishers will suffer for it! Business is strange like that!

    This also worries me in that I own stock in big G. They are in quite the bind. If they don't address the issues presented by the class action suit, they could lose advertisers, and therefore lose earnings, and the stock goes down. On the other hand, if, due to the law suit, they start banning accounts left and right, once again, they will lose earnings, and the stock price goes down. Quite the mess shaping up there.

    I'm still holding on to the stock at the moment though. I'm in wait and see mode, but ready to react if need be.

    I believe Google Adsense publisher is flexible. If Google drop Adsense, we will pick up the alternative(or another better alternative will come out).

    The biggest one to be affected would be Google!

    The main question is "How long is a piece of rope?"

    Just as the Roman Empire fell, so will Google, one day. There will be someone/thing waiting to replace Google. Life goes on, change is inevitsble. Sieze the moment.
