Google have suspended my Adsense account for 'Copyright Infringement'.

I was pretty surprised about that initially considering I've written all the code here in perl, bashed away at the HTML, javascript and CSS by hand, done all the images in gimp and I'm sure no one would want to try and take credit for my ramblings.

My guess after doing some more research on it is that they suddenly took offence to a link in the bookmarks section ( that had been there for the last four years at least ) to a torrent site which I won't name, but has links to obtain television in an easy manner. Pretty amazing to think that could qualify as copyright infringement.

I don't really care if they reinstate the ads or not, they kind of lower the tone a bit and mess up the page layout.
