The first thing you have to learn is to do what is best for
your company - first. After doing for yourself, you are
able to do for others. Sometime the best you can do
for an advertiser is deny use of your audience.

I don't know what classes you are referring to, but keep the
following in mind when dealing with an agency -- that the
agency is doing what is good for the agency and the client.
Since your original post was not specific about what protections
you were referring to, it is hard for me to address whether the
fears you enunciate are are real or imagined.
Are you too naive? I can't answer that one either, but
wonder why you are asking the question at all.
