UK: BBC not sure whether to block Phorm

The BBC says the “jury is still out” on whether it will join websites such as Amazon and Wikipedia in blocking Phorm.

The controversial advertising service tracks the websites its users visit in order to build “anonymous” profiles of their online behaviour. Those profiles are then used to serve up adverts that match the user’s habits.
