On adblocking

An adblocker works by removing the content of ads from websites, be they simple images, pop-ups, or automatically played videos. It does not alter the protected content of a web page but only acts on the user's device, changing the display of the web page in the browser.

In the article published on Hotnews.ro, Alexandru Laurențiu Mihai - Junior Lawyer, STOICA & Associates - aims to clarify the concept of adblocker and to answer the question of whether or not the use of such a program is an illegal act, in particular an infringement of intellectual property rights.
