Euro iAd Rumors Prove Correct
Earlier this week, the Financial Times of London picked up on a story that Apple’s mobile advertising platform - iAd - would soon expand across the pond as the team in Cupertino gears up to announce its first European iAd mobile advertising partners. As it turns out, the blossoming digital ads that many of us find to be remarkably irritating may soon begin irritating others on a completely different continent.
According to a report Sunday in the Financial Times of London: "Apple will announce the first brands to use iAds in Europe this week, after a mixed reception to its new mobile advertising service in the US." That projection has now proven accurate, as the forthcoming European launch will allow developers and advertisers in the UK to target iPhone users the same way as their peers have in the US. As of early December, the UK and France will see the debut of iAds, with Germany on tap for a January debut of the platform.
“We’re thrilled to add leading global brands to the iAd Network in Europe and create even more great opportunities for developers,” said Andy Miller, Apple’s vice president of iAd. “In just four months, we’ve doubled the number of advertisers on the network and thousands of developers now have a valuable new source of revenue.”

Anyone wanting to disable iAds, just use iFile, SSH or other method to delete or chmod *anything* (be careful, though) which contains: "iad", "admob", "flurry", "adlib", or "adsheet".
If you are going to chmod them, you should remove ALL permissions (chmod 0000). Also, you could change their owner and group so that it would be more difficult for them to reassign permissions.
I recommend the chmod method because if something goes wrong or you want to undo it, you can just reapply 0755 or 0777 permissions to the files.
Having FirewallIP installed helps, too.
I've done this on 3 different firmwares on two different devices with no side-effects.

Generally ads are not much of an issue, but too many companies abuse this making their apps unusable and/or unfriendly and irritating.

some of them having nothing to do with ad content. But, sure-
advertising support adds tremendously to the quantity and quality of available zero-cost applications.
