With the development of PPC, the shortcomings have emerged. Essentially, PPC is one of kinds of online ads, in which there exist a series of legal issues. And from the merchants' point of view, the keywords set by the merchants may infringe the trademark rights of others. In addition, PPC is paid by clicking, so under the drive of economic interests or others, Click Fraud may emerge. However, under the current situation, there are no practical laws that can be used to regulate the mentioned acts, but just because of such acts, several major search engine providers are frequently charged. So in order to protect millions of consumers and maintain the internet economic order, it is necessary to regulate these acts.
