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.
