Newspapers haven’t been able to slow the rapid growth of Craigslist’s classified advertising, but regulators might have better luck. The ongoing battle to curb sex ads on Craigslist took a turn on Friday, with a new ad campaign protesting the company’s policies about adult advertising. That same night, a federal judge blocked Craigslist’s attempt to halt an investigation
into its “adult services” section.
If regulators have their way, this could cut into a third of Craigslist’s earnings.
