The AdBlock Tax
Max Tremaine

The issue of governance seems up for interpretation country by country where they govern their citizens usage of the internet as a whole and therefore end up being somewhat of a pseudo-governing body for the internet where they have jurisdiction.

The idea of AdBlockPlus Whitelist program being a “tax” on ad tech is interesting. However, the term “tax” troubles me, as it implies that there is a mechanism for ad providers to buy access… which is basically the definition of anti-net neutrality.
