EFF staff technologist and primary Privacy Badger developer Cooper Quintin will be joining a panel at the 2016 Legal Frontiers in Digital Media conference discussing "the differences between the different ad-blocking apps, the reasons for their emergence, and how platforms, publishers, advertisers, and consumers are responding to the new environment. Included will be a discussion of Ad Block Plus's controversial "Acceptable Ads Program" in which major platforms have participated to keep their ads from being blocked. A diverse group of panelists will consider the various strategies that might be used to overcome – or co-exist with -- ad blocking technology."
