An Advertising First? Advertiser Takes Out Ad To Blast Advertising Company

September 2, 2010

From Search Engine Land:

A Consumer Watchdog group is airing a cartoon that is named “do not track me.”

The video depicts Google’s CEO, Eric Schmidt as seducing children to come get their “free ice cream.” Then the cartoon version of Eric Schmidt talks about how nothing is really free and how Google gives away things in exchange of stealing your privacy. The wow factor of all of this, is that 36 times per day the video will be played on a jumbotron in Times Square, New York City.

My question is: What”s Google’s / YouTube’s policy on hosting attack ads against… Google?
