I have read all of the other responses, including the relationships with the
two companies and can understand the possiblility of using this for free
press for both, however if the above is a concern, I can agree that there
may be a cause.

We have a Free Vendor Directory in which we list all companies that serve
our market (we called all for approval to be included). We don't charge for
this Yellow Pages type listing and we allow all companies to include their
e-mail and clickable URL in their basic listing page. We do not place
advertisements on these pages (which are similar to the MS page for
TicketMaster), just contact information and links. I can understand why
TicketMaster would be upset with MS using their name to sell ads on this
page, if indeed that is the concern.
