Blocking ads? Smaller digital publishers are smacked the hardest

just as copying an MP3 removes an income stream from an artist.

This is empirically wrong.

Buying an MP3 creates an income stream for the composer - which is right and good.

Breaking into his house and stealing the original creation removes an income stream from the creator (and is both wrong and illegal).

Copying an MP3 maybe morally wrong, but doesn't that mean listening to a radio equates to the same wrongness, the creator still gets nothing and you hear a song for nothing.

Oh, and fuck advertisers!

Juniper Research has stared into its crystal ball and predicted that digital publishers stand to lose over $27bn (£18bn) by 2020 due to ad-blocking.

Juniper Research has stared up its own arsehole and pulled a completely random number (more randon than a computers random number generator), out, predicting that digital publishers stand to lose over $27bn (£18bn) by 2020 due to ad-blocking.
