Well, that’s one way to get a business model

Jack Marshall, writing for the Wall Street Journal:

[Dean Murphy, developer of iOS content blocker app Crystal] said he has taken Eyeo up on its offer, and plans to implement an option within his app whereby “acceptable” ads will be displayed to users. The feature will be switched on by default, Mr. Murphy said, and he will receive a flat monthly fee from Eyeo in return. Mr. Murphy declined to disclose the fee, but said he expects to make less money from Eyeo’s payments than from sales of the app itself.

Hey, buddy, nice ads. It would be a shame if something were to happen to them.
