Ad blockers launched on Apple’s app store when iOS 9 was released and now we have the first case of one of their developers being sued.
Axel Spring, who is a major publisher in Germany is suing the developers behind the ad blocker called Blockr.
The developers of the Blockr Ad Blocker have argued that their software is legal and the court has agreed with them in the initial hearing, although the case is now being considered.
There will be a final ruling on the case on the 10th of December and if the ruling goes in favor of the publisher this could have an effect on ad blocking software in Europe.
Whether or not the court will decide to rule in favor of the developers remains to be seen, as soon as we get some more details, we will let you guys know.
