Yahoo Publishing Network Agreement Excludes Non US Readers from Viewing Ads

A reader just emailed me to let me know that he’d been accepted into Yahoo’s Publishing Network as a beta tester but that he’d noticed a rather odd clause in the agreement that he had to enter into.

The section in question reads:

you are a US-based business and you are operating Your Site solely for viewing and use by users within the US; and

display all or part of the Ad Unit to any user located outside the US;’

I knew Yahoo were only accepting US publishers into the beta test – but to limit them to only show ads to US readers is news to me and rather impractical. I know that I’ve seen quite a few sites with YPN ads (I’m in Australia) so either a lot of beta testers are breaking this agreement or YPN have made some sort of a mistake with the clause.

Strange.
