Porn Pop up ads go unpunished by FTC

The parent company of AdultFriendFinder.com and a handful of other adult web sites has been sanctioned—sort of—by the Federal Trade Commission for serving up pornographic pop-up ads. AdultFriendFinder, which bills itself as the “The World’s Largest Sex & Swinger Personals Community,” and other properties owned by Various, Inc., were targeted by the FTC for using spyware to serve up X-rated ads to unwitting web surfers.

According to the FTC, the ads were served up when users performed online searches for terms as innocuous as “flowers,” “travel,” and “vacation.” The FTC also says that some of the ads were also served up to children. (link)
