Verizon messes with the Greek gods
Give the Greeks credit for respecting their ruins. The country has had Verizon pull an ad that featured a picture of the Parthenon. It apparently breaks Greek law to run an unlicensed picture of one of its many ancient monuments. While that's not a shocker, the country also makes it hugely expensive and has ads approved by cultural officials before they can run. Well, at least there are a lot of cool Greek ruins in Turkey.
