Excellent news. I am very much hoping this effort will extend to the proliferation of AdSense ads on pirate movie sites around the globe that offer "free" streams and downloads to stolen films (from creators large and small). I hope this will also carry over to the cyber-locker sites as well that feature AdSense ads on downloads for stolen content (e-books, music, film, etc.)
