AP reports that:
A San Diego company has agreed to stop bombarding computer users with Internet pop-up ads to advertise its ad-blocking software, avoiding a court battle with the Federal Trade Commission.
The FTC's legal case against D Squared, one of the first to address pop-up ads that have become a common Internet marketing technique, was seen as an attempt to limit an often-intrusive form of advertising that exploits technology built into Microsoft Corp.'s Windows software.
The government alleged that using Messenger, D Squared was able to send pop up ads every ten seconds in the form of small dialogue boxes that usually appeared in the middle of the computer screen.
