Even if they do that, some people will just create illegal website mirrors that remove ads.

On reddit, people already copy paste articles when there's a paywall. I can totally envision that thing to be more common.

I am not fucking kidding, I will stop using websites if I cannot block ads. This is non negotiable. I don't care about your business model, I have zero money to give you. I tried the official reddit app, and uninstalled within a week.

I've even seen websites that copy stackoverflow questions and answers word for word, and just displays them differently.

I think that's spammy SEO abuse though... Not circumventing ads or anything.

Well if the OG source uses DRM, fuck em! I don't care if Google's search engine goes to shit. Not sure how much shittier it can get, but fuck em!
