NebuAd In Trouble After Congress Suggests Its Entire Business Is Illegal
from the oops dept
So, of course, if you happen to work at Phorm or NebuAd, you've got a bit of a business model problem (not to mention the potential legal problem). The Register is reporting that NebuAd has now laid off a bunch of employees -- and also dumped its PR firm. Considering the fact that no amount of PR probably could have stopped consumer outrage over how these services were implemented, it seems like the PR firm may have been something of a scapegoat --- or, perhaps, the company just realized that any PR work at this point is simply futile.
