"It appears the advertising was placed without Apple's consent and against its desires."

Well then, time to move on...

I like the second subhead. "File sharing is bad"!

Moving on aside, I would have thought that advertising on there would be a good thing. Maybe it would plant some seeds and all that. Of course, there is the downside of people following the link and earning money for the site...

That was my first thought till I sat and pondered. If they are buying advert space they are subsidizing file swapping, not a good spot for Apple to be in.
