An author was banned from Google’s advertising program for using Bittorrent to distribute his book for free, and for linking to the torrents on his site. Though he removed the offending links, Google refused to rescind the ban.
Jackson believed he was in the right, since he was distributing a book he self-published. He wrote to Google, explaining the situation and asking for his site to be reinstated in AdSense. Google responded with another bot-generated email saying his request was rejected


This is just another example of how copyright has strangled rather than protected creativity. :(

Not sure if this has anything to do with it, but I got a 14 cent check from google about 6 months back because of some legal crap they got into, I think it had to do with privacy/copyright issues.
I don't like to think before I speak.
I like to be just as surprised as everyone else by what comes out of my mouth.
