"Driving the latest flare-up is testimony by a former Google employee that the company earned $809,000 in AdWords revenue from EasyDownloadCenter.com and TheDownloadPlace.com, now-defunct "bootleg movie download" sites.
According to the Journal, Google assigned account executives who advised the sites on what keywords they should be selling, which implies Google had knowledge of the illegal nature of the sites."
One wonders: a do-no-evil employee denouncing or a disgruntled employee - which shouldn't exist as do-no-evil should produce disgruntlement. I also like the precision of the earnings ! nicely put.
