    Adcursor, New Technology

    visit adcursor.com and leave your mouse idle for 7 seconds. What do you think?

    Looks interesting.

    How many of you leave your mouse idle for 7 seconds while surfing the web? Or while using the computer at all? I sure don't, maybe I'm just the oddball.

    Good point!

    The only time my mouse is idle is when I'm typing, and I won't be clicking any ads then as my hands aren't even close to the mouse.

    While the technology has awesome potential, it needs some more thinking before it can become a viable, profitable advertising solution.

    But, hey, atleast it's not underlining text with yellow advertiser links

    I've actually tested this for a few ad networks already. End users hate it. The adcursor box covers up what they are trying to read or type.

Publishers will judge you on the way you behave as a representative for your ad network on these forums. I will give you credit, you are improving which is a good sign.

    adcursor version: http://www.adcursor.com/publishers.html (bottom of page.)

    I realize that this isen't a big deal, but it still IS copyright violation. If they would have asked I would have let them, now I'm a bit mad.
    Are you quite sure they copied it and it wasn't their lawyer/legal representation? Also, I wasn't aware that you could legally copyright legal documents as they directly relate to fact.

    You may want to look into this before you try anything un-productive.
