A New Strategy for Outdoor Advertising?
Here�s an interesting concept that circumvents some of the challenges of integrating advertising in online maps. SEW points out that the rooftop ads probably aren�t for the sake of online mapping satellite imagery; they actually target commercial flights as they approach airports.

It still makes one wonder about the possibilities in online mapping. It probably wouldn�t take off to a large degree; and if it did, mapping providers would likely blur out any ads that didn�t pay for placement. But it�s an interesting anecdote that demonstrates the creativity of marketers finding every last nook and cranny of advertising space in the physical and online worlds.

I spoke to Microsoft about this with Windows Live Local. The question is who owns the �inventory�? Can the search company put an ad on a photograph of a billboard and replace the actual ad that�s on that billboard in the real world?

A version of this is done now with blue screens and sports advertising�where they rotate digitally inserted ads on TV. But everyone�s on board with that.

In my example, wouldn�t the billboard owner scream and potentially litigate if Google or MSN started replacing, for example, Clear Channel�s outdoor advertisers with their own?

It�s a legal/copyright question and a very interesting one.
