Think of it as an advanced example of assuming good faith.  The
company cannot bear for the "advertising value" of "their" article to
be diluted.  The only way we can accommodate that is to delete it.
Danny was very kind to do this, and the project is not measurably
poorer as a result, it being trivially easy to find the product on the
internets should one be so inclined.
