Please send me the (£-$)10m right away, before (£-$) turns negative!
The US Securities and Exchange Commission has fined mobile data analytics biz App Annie $10m for engaging in deceptive practices and making material misrepresentations about how its alternative data was derived. The vendor has agreed to settle the case "without admitting or denying the findings in the SEC's order," according …
@Aristotles slow and dimwitted horse "effectively guilty as charged."
While that is true, effectively guilty is not the same as found guilty.
When it comes to breaking the law it should not be possible to settle a case without admitting guilt, being found guilty and the verdict recorded.
The general public can't agree to settle can they? When was the last time someone was charged with something like say, car theft agreed to settle for a lesser punishment, say a year in jail, without admitting guilt and not being found guilty.
