On March 04 Fred Wilson criticised Google Adsense terms of service (TOC). This move came after he had revealed his adsense earnings publicly violating TOC and receiving some feedback from the outside. He also criticised some other terms such as the rule that you cannot run another ad network along Adsense:
"Who do they think they are anyway? I am creating the content that brings the audience. If I want to run one, two, or three ad networks, they should be fine with that. And eventually they will be. As my kids say, "who made you the boss of the world"?"
Today (17/03) Google updates Adsense Terms of Services so you can now talk about earnings. If you want.
Not enough. After all, Yahoo is around the corner.
