Google is profiting from ads for illegal products generated by its flagship automated advertising system, the BBC has found.
The ads include unofficial London 2012 Olympics ticket resellers, as well as cannabis and fake ID card sellers.
These ads were promptly removed by Google after the BBC brought them to the company's attention.
Google has also taken down links to illegal Olympic ticket resellers following requests from the police.
