It is very interesting that you should mention that. Advertising in the
theaters is a huge money maker for those ad companies. Heck, I even
thought about advertising on there. But to your point, advertising is
paying for a lot of things now and movies are one of them. 

They had to make money back from all the illegal copies (DVDs) that are
going around. I see this as a next step whether we like it or not.

Companies like EA will eventually do it more to profit from sales
dipping due to illegal software. Imo.

If I got a free version of the game w/ advertisements, or paid to get
of them, that would be fine.  a la Eudora.

But nothing pisses me off, for example, like these ads they're showing
movie theaters before the film.  Trailers are one thing, car adverts are

quite something else when I've paid to get into the place.

They didn't lower the ticket prices when they started doing that!
