Big 3 Pay Big Bucks for Gambling Ads

Microsoft, Google, and Yahoo have been fined a total of $31.5 million for accepting advertisements promoting illegal gambling.

For once, Microsoft gets to be first in something online as they will pay the most ($21 million) for their misdeeds.

Illegal gambling sites and advertising have been effectively scuttled after the BetOnSports.com ring was busted last year. These annoying and revenue generating ads have been replaced by ring tones and adult content as they easiest way for websites to make money through questionable practices.

Great post! Talking about adverts does anyone use any tools to help them create them? I'm using Glyphius at the moment.
