Blog2006 ≫ Boing Boing: Yahoo: if you use our ads, you have to block non-US visitors

Thanks to Pid1 for this odd piece about yahoo ads2. Yahoo have their own "publisher network", like Google's adsense, bloggers can earn money by putting some ad space on their site. BUT, Yahoo say you must not

display all or part of the Ad Unit to any user located outside the US

Bizarre, is it defence related? Does their ad code include encryption that cannot be exported?

Verrrry bright and sunny today, but super cold, even on the train, no heating working... trudging up from Charing Cross3 I was still cold through to my marrow as everywhere seemed to be in shadow - when the sun's extra bright it makes the shadows seem darker and colder. I didn't hit a nice patch of sun to walk in until I got to Bow Street4, and when I did I wanted to just lay down in it like a cat and soak up some solar heat. But I got over it.

Very quiet in work so far today.
