You should be able to opt-out of online advertising

What

Ads online are the bane of many people's existence whilst browsing online, they are also a large reason for the distribution of malware. Currently you can download an AdBlock addon/software which blocks these ads from showing but lots of sites such as TV channels, newspapers and other won't let you block them due to this being a large money maker for them.

Why

Ads online are not only very annoying for a lot of people, but as mentioned above a big reason for the distribution of malware causing identity theft and other crimes. We should be able to opt out at ISP level from online ads shown on sites, this would work at a higher level to adblock software.
