Microsoft is now ending its infamous Anti-Google Scroogled TV advertising campaign. Microsoft senior director of online services Stefan Weitz said "that part is about finished," referring to the TV ads that lambasted the search company. The Scroogled website is still up. He said over 110,000 people signed Microsoft's petition on the petition to "Tell Google to stop going through your email to sell ads.

 

Microsoft has given the following statement regarding the Scroogled ad campaign:

 

The Scroogled campaign has sparked a dialogue that shows how much consumers care about their privacy, and how strongly they feel about the fact that Google goes through their personal emails to sell ads. More than 3.5 million people visited Scroogled.com, and over 114k signed a petition asking Google to stop going through their Gmail. While the ad portion of this phase of the consumer education campaign has finished its scheduled run, this important conversation about privacy continues, and so does this important consumer choice.

Nope, a Microsoft spokesperson said that "stay tuned for the next chapter". :P

 

"Scroogled will go on as long as Google keeps Scroogling people. We know Google doesn’t like it when the facts come out. Chapter two of the consumer education campaign has shown people care about their privacy. More than 3.5 million people visited scroogled.com, and nearly 115,000 people signed a petition asking Google to stop going through their Gmail. Stay tuned for the next chapter."
