I'm just wondering if anybody knows if Google has any plans to combat this. A lot of people have software on their computer that is triggered/launched by keywords. Somebody can go to my site that has Adsense ads and this software can launch competing contextual advertising causing me lost revenue, Google advertisers possible lost traffic/sales, and Google lost revenue. This software can also launch off of Google SE results and Adwords. Also i'm concerned about Ad Blockers that are on by default. Makes Adwords ads and Adsense unclickable. Thanks

I have no answer to your question but I can see the threat of Microsoft building an Ad(Words)-blocker into Windows and activiate it per default.
