As a veteran of the great adware wars of 2003-2006, I have to agree that the danger of over-reaching, innovation-hindering legislation was always greater than the annoyance of "interruptive advertising." And as Eric points out, the danger is still there. We’re see similar knee-jerk reactions to behavioral targeting, for example, with the New York and Connecticut bills.
