    NetCigar's closed their affiliate programs (plural).

    Bang! As quick as an exploding cigar.

    Recommendations for other cigar affiliates?

    Thanks for that Haiko, but on reding their affiliate agreement, I find I cannot sign up, as it would limit my ability to market non-cigar related products:

    "You agree not to apply for registration of any of the Marks (or any mark similar thereto) anywhere around the world."

    That's fine, until you look at their "marks" and see that many of them are common, generic English or Spanish words:

    Mariachi
    Sloppy joe
    Pinata
    Nitro
    La serena
    Dynamo
    El gringo

    So if I sign their agreement, I would no longer be able to register the name drewbertspinatas.com to sell pinatas through.

    Yet another company who thinks it can extend limited TM rights to mean "any use" of a generic term.

    No thanks.
