Pop Up Advertising is a crime in AU!
Pop-up advertising is annoying, but is it a crime?
In one of the strangest things i've read in a while, the AHTCC (Australian High Tech Crime Centre) a Federal Government agency, has classified pop-up advertising as a form of online crime according to its website.
Check out 'Types of online crime and who can help'
So next time your media agency submits a media plan that includes pop-up advertising, perhaps you should point out that its possibly a crime in Australia...
We can only hope that they start locking up some of the media planners out there ;)
Blatant misuse of the word 'viral' should also be a crime, so I'm going to start lobbying.
