Autobytel Inc., an online automotive services provider, launches the new website with enhanced and easy-to-use car research filters to help consumers quickly find vehicles that match features they want.

Kingstar Media announces it has invested in sophisticated Web attribution and real-time analytic modeling. It also hires Nika Charlton as junior media analyst, Sophie (Guertin) Vick as media manager and Sean Pegoraro as media coordinator.

Mobile Direct Response announces a nationwide speed-dial that allows mobile consumers to simply dial “#250” and say a keyword to be connected to advertisers in a voice call, and optionally receive a text message with more information – such as a website link, coupon, address, or phone number for later reference. For example, a consumer who dials #250 on his cell phone and says “baseball” can be connected to his favorite MLB team’s ticket office and receive a text message with a link to the team website.

Amazon is experimenting with ads on shipping boxes. Previously the delivery boxes only carried messages for Amazon’s own products and services, but now it is selling space on the boxes to outside advertisers.

LinkedIn agrees to pay $13 million to resolve a class-action lawsuit accusing it of misappropriating users’ names by sending e-mail invitations to their friends, according to court papers.

Yahoo asks an appellate court to block consumers from bringing a class-action privacy suit over the company’s e-mail scanning practices.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit denies Sinclair Broadcasting’s challenge to the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) incentive auction framework. In August, Sinclair and the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) challenged the FCC’s broadcast incentive auction, saying that the method the commission was using to predict TV station coverage areas would result in significant viewership loss. Both challenges were denied.
