No DEAL! Interactive Advertising Bureau
Dear Interactive Advertising Bureau,
Your DEAL is toxic for human rights. You urge sites to coerce us to stop protecting ourselves from web malware. This leaves us open to malicious ads and to the violation of our privacy through behavioural tracking.
While others like Alexander Hanff are doing valuable work to determine the legality of the actions of your members (see his recent letter to IDG), we are going the technological route: we will actively protect people from your attempts to detect and block their ability to defend themselves against web malware and tracking.
So our response, quite simply, is this:
You have no DEAL!
