Default The Google Ads dilemma

Google Ads are considered an excellent way bring in money for support of a web site. And ads that key on the content of the pages are supposed to be the best way to do it. Problem for me is, any time a graphic related site has Google ads, those ads are promoting the sites that are alleged bootleggers. And I'm not going to say they are bootleggers, because maybe they found a legal loop hole with this OEM thing. But if they are bootleggers, it doesn't play well, or feel right to run these ads. Also, considering Adobe's interest in stopping bootlegging (as demonstrated by adding activation), I wonder why we have not seen Adobe protesting this kind of advertising.
