To fight ad blocking, publishers are finding strength in numbers.

Urged by the French online publishing trade body Geste, a group of French publishers is trialling a week-long experiment to deter ad blockers, starting Monday March 21.

Those involved include Le Monde, Le Figaro, RTE, Le Parisien, L’Equipe and music platform Deezer.
