I believe they were upset because if you followed the link to the
Ticketmaster site, the Microsoft banner, navigation bar, ads, etc. were
still shown on the screen in another frame. This made it look like the
Ticketmaster site was some part of the Microsoft site.
Very old news, I'm sure, but I hadn't heard anything about the Ticketmaster
link being in a frame within the Microsoft Seattle Sidewalk City Guide.

But I agree with you, Jay...like they don't charge enough already and their
bitching about a link? Anyone gone to a concert lately and bought tickets
through them? I think their upto something like $6 service charge including
mailing, etc. It's really expensive.
