Three Web sites that joined Interactive Imaginations' Commonwealth Network filed a class action suit against the company, alleging breach of contract and fraudulent practices. Interactive, which publishes game site Riddler
, launched Commonwealth
a year ago to help Web sites gain ad revenue while retaining their homegrown look and feel. It is one of the first so-called ad networks on the Net.
The lawsuit, filed in Superior Court of the State of California in Los Angeles for plaintiffs Brian Shuster of Lake Tahoe, Calif., Michelle Wallace of Los Angeles and Scott Raymond of New York, who all run small Web sites, claims Commonwealth engaged in unfair business practices.
