    I've never said it's ok one way or the other. Pirating copyrighted material is wrong here or in Mars. As I mentioned previously, if there's nothing in the T&Cs stating mandatory ad viewing, there's nothing wrong with blocking them. You can't compare the two because one carries a copyright and the other doesn't. There are international laws that govern copyrights. I'm not aware of any governing body for ads.
    So, I understand your reasoning like this: It's okay to make a business earn less as long as it's legal, however it's wrong as soon as it's illegal.

    I think there's no argument against this, I'll keep my troubles understanding the rational behind it for me now. This hasn't been a real exchange of thoughts anyway.

    Personally have already subscriptions for some sites that changed to a paying model because of the adblocking issues, I have no problem paying for more. I however hope that nobody using adblockers will complain when the "free" internet is suddenly not so free anymore.
