Reuters is reporting on a California man who claimed that he had developed a program that could generate false clicks on Google Adsense ads. The man wanted money from Google NOT to give the program to spammers.

A federal grand jury in San Jose, California, returned an indictment on Wednesday against Michael Anthony Bradley of Oak Park, California, charging him with one count of interfering with commerce by threats and 10 counts of wire fraud over a scheme for a software program he claimed to have developed.

The program reputedly created fraudulent "clicks" on Google's "cost-per-click" advertisements on Web sites, according to the U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of California.
