    Read this one:

    We require all Performics Affiliates to follow the guidelines set in the
    forth in the Spiegel affiliate agreement.

    Affiliate agrees not to bid on the Spiegel name or any common misspelling,
    or confusingly similar name, on any pay-for-placement search engine,
    including, but not limited to,, and
    Affiliate also agrees to not utilize, advertise or otherwise promote, any
    Spiegel promotional code or coupon without first obtaining Spiegel's
    written permission.

    The Spiegel name is trademarked and the intellectual property of Spiegel
    Inc. These trademarks cannot be used in meta-tags, keywords or page titles.

    If you are currently using the trademarked name in any search engine
    positioning technique, please stop immediately. Keep in mind that you are
    free to create a textual link that refers your visitors to the Spiegel
    site. In fact, this is what you should do. However, this textual link must
    be embedded into the content of your site and may not be used in search
    engine optimization techniques. The terms that fall within these
    guidelines are attached. Please note that the list is not limited to the
    terms included in the attached document.

    Spiegel would like to thank you for your participation in our Affiliate
    Program and feel that through maintaining clear lines of communication and
    a healthy work relationship with our Affiliates, we will all enjoy much
    continued success.

    Thank you for your cooperation.

    Damn, where can we buy stupid pills wholesale and resell them. The market seems to be huge. People must be making fortunes selling these little blue meanies.

    Seems every merchant on the planet has bought some.

    Sounds like Spiegel should be working with ad companies to sell ads instead of running an affiliate program. Since they seem to want total control over how their name is presented.

    I'd bet there are people in Spiegel that realize just how stupid this action was. But obviously someone that is not too bright is running things. Or they just have enough power to mess up a good thing [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img] .

    >where can we buy stupid pills wholesale and resell them.

    Come on now Fred, the pills are given away by Commission Junction as a souvenir. This is what happens when Affiliate Networks lose the meaning of "Affiliate" and try running AD Networks.

    Affiliate, by definition, has every rights to use the company's trademarks and intellectual properties for his marketing purposes that ultimately aimed at bringing revenue to the company.

    IDIOTS must get out of Affiliate Marketing business.

    These stupid pills didn't come from CJ, Blues!

    From Fred's quote of Spiegel's notice:

    "We require all Performics Affiliates to follow the guidelines set in the
    forth in the Spiegel affiliate agreement."
