Det här börjar bli komplicerat tycker jag.|
Om en individ, typ jag, blockar reklam är det okej.
Om en ISP gör det är det inte okej enligt Lauren.

Ad Blocking vs. ISPs ("The French Connection") http://j.mp/Wm03Au (New York Times) "Mr. Niel's telecommunications company, Free, which has an estimated 5.2 million Internet-access users in France, began last week to enable its customers to block Web advertising. The company is updating users' software with an ad-blocking feature as the default setting." - - - Let me be very clear about this. I have written in the past of the problematic nature of individuals employing ad blocking (originally in "Blocking Web Ads -- And Paying the Piper" ( http://bit.ly/8QLzYc [Lauren's Blog] ), but for an ISP to become involved in ad blocking -- particularly by default -- is as abusive of their role as an Internet access provider as would be their blocking particular sites or pages with which they had a political disagreement. It is a direct affront to the most basic tenets of net neutrality, and should be vigorously opposed. --Lauren-- Lauren Weinstein (lauren@xxxxxxxxxx): http://www.vortex.com/lauren Co-Founder: People For Internet Responsibility: http://www.pfir.org/pfir-info Founder: - Network Neutrality Squad: http://www.nnsquad.org - PRIVACY Forum: http://www.vortex.com/privacy-info - Data Wisdom Explorers League: http://www.dwel.org - Global Coalition for Transparent Internet Performance: http://www.gctip.org Member: ACM Committee on Computers and Public Policy Lauren's Blog: http://lauren.vortex.com Google+: http://vortex.com/g+lauren / Twitter: http://vortex.com/t-lauren Tel: +1 (818) 225-2800 / Skype: vortex.com _______________________________________________ nnsquad mailing list http://lists.nnsquad.org/mailman/listinfo/nnsquad
