As for the way chosen to finance himself, here it is: the ex Canadian founded an on-line marketing company that has been quoted at (in fact) 40 million dollars. The company (AdsCPM, the third biggest company of this type in the world), with headquarters in New York, was initially concerned with search engines and pop-ups for at least 5000 websites. It even seems that, having invented a pop-up system, started selling the pop-up blocking system: which is, to sum it up, even more genial.
Sanford Wallace got in trouble with the FTC for doing just this. You cannot create a problem such as AdWare with pops gallore and then create or sell a solution for it. I'm also curious as to what 'type' of company they are referring to. 3rd biggest malware company?
