AdSense Consulting, which has owned adsense.com since 1996, has finally given up telling people we are not Google and is selling the domain name - Google, which has meanwhile stomped all over the small company's name, has no comment. The least they could have done is let the company run Adsense Ads. But no, not even that. Meanwhile, in another story, the National Post decided it liked a blog post and simply ran the post in the newspaper without permission or payment. Stories like this just feed my scepticism about the ethics of copyright - it is something, it seems, you must respect unless you are large enough and rich enough to simply take what you want.
