Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
As I am based in the UK, our local office is shut so NO answer till the morning.
Wonder what is going on here then?
I see the product names gone but the generic terms still live.
I'm not surprise to see this in the wake of the recent FTC statements. In these industries affiliates are bidding on trademarked terms. With the FTC coming down on how these products are advertised I can imagine that the manufactures have their sheilds up and have loosed a horde of lawyers to cover their collective butts as we speak.
Im sure they are losing quite a big chunk of change by not showing these ads. I know i gave them a nice sum daily and i wasnt even one of the big boys on there. I guess they are just playing it safe.
Yes. Word is that it just started in Overture too. It doesn't take much effort for the trademark lawyers to blanket the major ad engines with a C&D.
>Are you referring to a word
Let's not get into guessing the actual words, please.

They are back for now, but I "think" there IS something going on behind the scenes in relation to this.
