A federal court judge in Pennsylvania has granted an order allowing advertisers to use adverts from The Washington Post’s ad network.
The decision, filed Tuesday, gives advertisers the right to use a portion of the Post’s $1.5 billion ad budget to buy TV spots and digital ads.
Advertising executives said Tuesday they will have to review the order before they can begin their own plans.
The court said the order allows for the sale of an advertising platform that advertisers could use to sell their own advertisements to the Post.
The ruling means that any company that wants to purchase advertising from the Post will have the right and responsibility to do so.
A spokesperson for the Post said the court’s order “sends a clear message to those companies that seek to use The Post’s advertising revenue to build their own ad-buying platforms that the court will be listening to their arguments and will determine what appropriate measures will be in place to protect consumers.”
The ruling also gives advertisers access to the network’s digital advertising and gives them the ability to publish content to promote their own brands and brands of products.
The ruling comes amid concerns that advertisers are being given preferential treatment, with little oversight.
The court’s ruling also allows for a broader range of ad deals than the ruling allowed.
Advertisers can still buy ads from The Post, but they will need to follow certain rules, such as not making use of the network for commercial purposes.
The court also said the Post can’t advertise on The Hill directly, but that it can promote content to advertisers by offering it as an add-on for other content.
The Hill has long struggled to obtain ads from advertisers.
But in 2015, it became the first newspaper to sign a deal with an ad-sharing service that allowed it to advertise on its digital platforms.
On Tuesday, The Hill’s network agreed to pay $6.4 million to The Post to allow the publication to buy ads on its website, the Post reported.
The Post had said it would accept ads from any ad network it wanted to partner with.
Advertiser groups, including the National Association of Realtors and the National Advertisers Association, have called on the Post to drop its partnership with The Hill.
