Blocking cookies is create but no efficient as most common major websites require them to make use of their services.

As I am trialing several Marketing Automation Systems, one common functionality that they all have is installing cookies on the client's machine. Most even take it further and get around privacy settings where they will install a cookie no matter what. Even if you have cookies blocked. Not sure if that's even legal but they do if you opt to do that.

I am not extremely web savvy, but I can already block all cookies in any browser can't I? Is the controversy simply that Firefox would block them by default?

" 'They're putting this under the cloak of privacy, but it's disrupting a business model,' Lou Mastria, the managing director for the Digital Advertising Alliance (DAA), told Adweek."

It's disrupting a business model? Aww, I'm so sorry to hear that. You didn't even HAVE that business model until we developed browser technology. The ad industry will just have to adapt like it did before and like every other industry does.
