A cyberscammer who used more than 5,500 copycat Web addresses to divert surfers from their intended Internet destinations to one of his sites and hold them captive while he pelted their screens with a barrage of ads was charged by the Federal Trade Commission with violating federal laws. At the request of the FTC, a U.S. District Court enjoined his activities pending further order of the court. The FTC is going to court to force the defendant to give up his ill-gotten gains.
