falling revenue from droppping circulation figures and advertising revenue has the old media twitchy….
so they have decided to have a go at google news…
google do what we do here at whoar..namely look around the world for what (we) feel will be of interest to our readers..
we are called news aggregators….we grab the headline….write an intro…(whoar does that..google just takes the first few lines/pics of any story.). and link back to the original story..)
which ..the argument goes..(as far as copyright is concerned)..is ok..because we are taking/linking readers back to the original source…therefor..(the argument goes)..us aggregators are actually benefitting the old media..by bringing them readers to their individual publications..)
so..this could be a long expensive battle..and i thank google for fighting on the behalf of whoar…..
and attempting to step back and take an overview..it would appear to be difficult for the old media to stop us aggregators..
we shall see…
