Go Daddy

Scottsdale-based Go Daddy, the web hosting firm known for its racy Super Bowl ads, is the target of a class-action lawsuit claiming the company is profiting from advertising on registered domain names without the consent of the domain owners.

According to Courthouse News Service, the lawsuit filed in Phoenix and Arkansas federal courts claims that Go Daddy is “unlawfully generating and retaining revenue derived from these online advertisements each time an Internet user clicks an online advertisement appearing on plaintiff’s domain names.”
