Earlier this year, web browser provider Mozilla Firefox announced a new feature blocking third party cookies by default. This move naturally caused uproar in the online advertising industry with SVP and General Counsel, Mike Zaneis of the IAB US calling it a “nuclear first strike against (the) ad industry.” The backlash has led to an online petition led by the IAB Long Tail Alliance with those against the move coming together to express their disapproval.

Have your say by signing the petition and learn more about the cause via the A4u.
