    Too many fuck tards abusing the fact that movie sites were actually allowed. You think moving to another network will solve the problem? Well your wrong because other networks will follow.

    What the FUCK !! :hmmmm2: , I just spent a week on a kick ass TV show site and was about to activate the gateway tomorrow, I havn't got that letter yet though . I've only been with this network a week and so far had a really good feeling about them. Oh well maybe time to move on before even starting . What other networks have a good gateway.

    CPA-Lead is the only alternative I know of. Are there any others out there?

    CPA*lead sucks, your really better off making your own cpa gateways, its not that hard, just need to know good incent offers. Or check out the PPI forum for other gateway options...

    In a thread, reading up on posts.
    Thats weird, I also got an email from them but it is slightly different worded:

    The wording is really different because in the first mail it states that your account will be banned, whereas in the mail I pasted in they basicly say "use on your own risk".

    Maybe I should also add that I am in the process of signing up yet they clearly state that this message goes out to everybody...

    Whats you take on this guys?

    "Please note that effective immediately, Adscend Media is prohibiting the use of our content gateway on any websites that host, embed, or link to any copyrighted content."

    Um, that doesnt sound like they mean "use on your own risk", definitely not allowed at all...

    Got my widgets deleted in the middle of my usual peak hours.
    List like 75% of my average earnings of a given day.

    I have switched to CPAL3333d now but will investigate for better options.
    Do you guys have any recommendation? How does PPI work for TV show/movie sites?

    Regards,
    Steve

    I got this:

    Hello,

    Please note that effective immediately, Adscend Media is prohibiting the use of
    our content gateway on any websites that host, embed, or link to any copyrighted
    content. We have conducted a thorough audit and all sites found with copyrighted
    content have had their gateway profile deleted. If you run a website with such
    content, you need to ensure that your gateway has been removed and remove it if
    it has not been. Rest assured however that we will be paying for all retainable
    earnings up to and including today.

    Going forward, the use of our gateway on a website containing copyrighted
    material such as movies, tv shows, songs, etc will result in an account ban and
    forfeiture of all commissions owed. Please take note of this as we do not wish
    for this to occur.

    Once more, all commissions owed up to this moment will be paid for.

    We thank you for your understanding and look forward to continuing to grow a
    mutually beneficial partnership with all of our publishers.

    The wording been different dose not mean a thing.

    The thing is they have decided to delete any accounts with copyrighted content.

    Even though in one message they said "use on your own risk" they have obviously changed their mind and decided to delete the accounts instead.

    What happens if I promote videos that don't exists? Or if I promote a movie site with a gateway that link to a blank page?

    From my experience, you can do this with a few CPA Networks. Some AMs won't take kindly to it though and you may need a good excuse. As for Adscend, I wouldn't take that chance though - you don't want to lose money.
