Ad-Blockers 'Should Be Blocked'
0Overall Score

The newspaper industry rarely shies away from a fight and it’s no different when it comes to ad-blockers that cruel their revenue.The Newspaper Association of America, which represents

2000 US newspapers, has filed a federal complaint against the ad-blocking

industry. It claims software companies which enable users to block ads are

misleading the public.

The papers want US trade practice authorities to bar ad blockers that offer

so-called “paid white-listing” – services which charge advertisers to

bypass ad-blocking software.

Other services have been found substituting ad blockers’ own advertising for

blocked ads.
