Web sites prey on rivals' stores
For 1-800-Flowers.com to get rid of the FTD ad they'd supposedly have to pay more for the spot than FTD is. Uhh, isn't this extortion?
You shouldn't have to pay to keep other people from putting ads on your site or your building or anything. Thankfully it appears you have to be using IE/craptive-x and some music-stealing software like AudioGalaxy to be affected by this. So music-buying, Mozilla-using, selectively cookie-refusing people like myself won't have to put up with this crap.
