This is the same thing that happened with Google Chrome - Google slapped their generic ToS on a new thingy without thinking about it, people flip out because the generic ToS says "we get to own/keep all your information" (because on Google Maps and search results it makes sense to say such things), and soon Google will go "wait, CRAP, we didn't think that one through" and make a "specialized" (read: slightly modified) ToS that says they CAN'T do that.

If you root your phone, you could edit the /etc/hosts file with something and point all the ad servers to 127.0.0.1. I found an app on the Android Market (when it was called that anyway) that would do that for you if you were rooted but it didn't get all of them. Still it's a start, and if you had a way to get the servers your phone is talking to you could easily find the rest.

Still, in cases where rooting's not desirable (company phone, voids warranty, whatever) this is still important news.

You've been Berkeley'ed!
