---- The Google AdSense scoop on multiple ad units

Well I was confused so I wrote to the Google Adsense team yesterday and here is part of their reply:
Essentially, our policy concerning double-serving (showing two identical ads on a single page) has not changed from before the updated Terms and Conditions were released. As there is currently no mechanism in place to prevent double-serving if two ad units are on the same page, publishers may only place one copy of AdSense ad code on each page.
Double-serving also includes showing AdWords ads through an ad network - you may not have AdSense code on a page that also displays AdWords ads through such a network.
The recently updated language on ad placement was added to allow us to introduce new features as we move forward. If we do add a feature that will allow multiple ad units on a page without any duplication of ads, we'll certainly let you know via email. Until then, please ensure that a maximum of one ad unit is placed on each of your pages.
