Copyright Issues

exclusive content deals: is this a problem?

don't let people like fox and rupert murdoch start to limit what certain search engines can list.


I don't mind this for fox, exactly, because i'd prefer fewer people are able to find their content, to be honest.


what worries me though, is that they will set a precedent where there will be discrimination against search engines who want to be able to index as much content as possible.


if more companies start to charge these search engines, where will this eventually lead?


perhaps we should let those who think they can fight the tide and be kings limit their exposure to the internet so they shrivel up and die... but as soon as their behavior starts to thwart the open free use of the internet, there's where there can be real problems...
