Advertising software company Claria, formerly known as Gator, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on Thursday to go public, in a sign of further momentum for Internet IPOs.

Claria said it will continue to benefit from the growth of the online advertising business. But it also faces numerous risks, including new state laws and lawsuits that allege its pop-up ads violate the trademarks and copyrights of third-party site publishers.

Claria said that it has 43 million people active on its ad network. The company has eight offices in the United States and Europe.

EDIT: Wonder if that 43 million are people who actually WANT their crapware? More than likely NOT!!!

Accoding to the article Banks are banking these scum.

It will serve them right when their own computers get overwhelmed with ads.

Sorry mate, you paid for them
