Coming to a court near you: A new Yahoo! case
A few years ago, in a landmark case, Yahoo! was ordered by a French judge to forbid French users to access parts of its auction website. Is what follows related to this case? Boing Boing reports that a member of "Yahoo Publisher Network", a sponsored links program, received this e-mail: "... you are in violation if your ads receive traffic from sources outside the United States. However, there are scripts and programs which you can initiate to block international users from viewing or encountering your Yahoo! Publisher Network ads."
