Lew Irwin has been publishing a showbiz-information report called Studio Briefing daily since 1992, — first by fax, and then online (including a prime spot on IMDb.com) — but he’s been forced to shut it down over a dispute with Google. And they won’t even tell him what he did wrong or how to fix it. Instead, they’ve de-listed him, taken away his AdSense account, and won’t let him buy AdWords. Details here.
Lew is still offering Studio Briefing by e-mail, but I hope he can clear things up soon to get his website and syndication deal back on track.
Update 6:22pm: Lew e-mails, “It’s just the SB blog that I’ve had to shut down.”
