According to the Adsense blog, Google has updated its Adsense program policy page to make the format more readable. The policies have stayed the same though. A cleaner policy page was a good call on Googleâ??s part.
Adsense policies can easily confuse new publishers. I know someone who got his Adsense account deactivated because of a seemingly innocent mistake. His account would still have been active if he read the policies page more thoroughly.
