Using Google AdSense to mess with “The Man”…

Posted by jwoodymeach on August 1, 2008

Sony BMG Columbia may not be “The Man” (unless you’re a musician), but I LOVE when people do this type of thing.

Not the “vandalism” portion of the act (which I equate to spray painting on a billboard – remember “Turk 182”?) — rather finding a loophole is a system to allows you to express a view.

I know a couple you can do with Web Analytics platforms. 🙂

So many clients are looking to make a buck that they forget the purpose of their website. Columbia wasn’t going to make serious money through AdSense. That site is for promoting their artists and/or direct selling of their music – stay focused!
