INTUIT BOWS TO BLOCK, WILL CHANGE ADS: Intuit Inc. will alter a $25 million ad campaign for its TurboTax software after H&R Block took the company to court, saying the advertisements were inaccurate.Launched January 9, the television and radio commercials were the centerpiece of the campaign that claimed "more returns were prepared with TurboTax last year than at all the H&R Block stores combined." Intuit agreed to change the commercials after a court ruled that the company could not run ads containing the claim through April 30.

The U.S. District Court for the Western District of Missouri, where Block filed the lawsuit, has not yet ruled on Block's claims for monetary damages and a permanent injunction on running the ads.
