|Microsoft ordered to remove advertising decals from streets |
The decals began appearing Thursday on sidewalks, doorways, traffic signals and stop lights as part of an advertising campaign for the company's MSN 8 Internet service. They could still be seen all around town Friday.
I call this type of advertising as obstrusive as their products. They claim the service do away with pop-ups, sheesh!
The 300 millions advertising budget will certainly hurt AOL.

I think it's pretty wrong, too. When I lived in New York, it would have been really annoying to see this kind of thing - there are enough paid ads all over already, without adding 'unauthorized' paid ads.
$50 bucks? Sheesh, you can barely get into midtown and out for that price (if you don't actually *live* in the city, as many people commute).
That is hardly fair...think a small company would have gotten the same treatment?

The MSN butterfly has been reclassified to a litterbug.

They are easy to remove magnetic decals.
