H1B Visa + Online income = Trouble

I came across an article which made me aware of the issues related to H1B visa and earning income through Online.
If you are on H1B visa working in US, then you are not allowed to earn income through any means other than your employer and the investments you made. If you do so, then your legal status would be in trouble. Even though you are not working for any employer, the online earnings such as Adsense considered to be an income from other source than your employer which is not allowed.

Please do not consider this blog as legal advice and not take any actions based on this post. This is just a warning about earning income from other sources while you are working on H1B visa. Please discuss with your immigration attorney and take actions as necessary.
