We got quite a nasty letter in the mail from our Adsense reps today. It is pasted below:

The problem was that someone in our forums had posted a link to”Your Sound” an iOS App Store app which allows people to download Youtube videos (we deleted the post but screenshot is below the fold). This move seems to be part and parcel to Google’s statement that it  would cut funding from crooks.  Your Sound has since been removed from the App Store and there would be no way of getting this app from the post in any case.

Still, for mentioning a YouTube downloader, we could lose a revenue stream. That doesn’t quite seem fair.

  1. And i wonder if you’ll get another violation for this post explaining that you got a content violation. After all, you mention the phrase “youtube downloader”.
