eBay say ‘OI, PPC affiliates… NO!’

eBay today announced they were changing the rules for their PPC affiliates.

Unfortunately, from 1st February 2008 we will no longer compensate for Paid Search traffic from Google, Yahoo or MSN, if directly linked to an ebay.co.uk page. After this time, any earnings from revenue or ACRUs generated through direct Paid Search will be reversed. This applies to the UK affiliate programme only.

This doesn’t affect me but I know a few people who will be severely put out by this. I wonder why it’s only the UK that’s affected?
