Legal Experts on How Murdoch's Threats May Impact "Fair Use" Doctrine | BNET Media Blog... - 2 views

  • Media industry titan Rupert Murdoch’s explicit threats this week to block Google from searching his content sites, and to sue the BBC for its use of content he says is “stolen” from his sites got me to wondering whether the head of News Corp. has, in fact, any basis in the law for launching these calculated attacks at this time and in this manner.
  • Murdoch perhaps does have at least a narrow legal perch to stand on.
  • he is not trying to grow his audience any longer, he says.

      So basically, Google is taking something he wants to charge for and making it free. But my question is, if he wants to charge for it, shouldn't it be bedhind some sort of firewall or is it Google's job to see which sites it is allowed to index? Aren't there certain protocols that make the Net what it is? Certain standards? Isn't one of those the open indexing or crawling of unprotected sites? I'm not sure but hoping someone will respond.
  • Google allows Murdoch, or any publisher, to “opt out” of allowing its pages to be indexed?
  • know how to use the Robots Exclusion Protocol
  • he wants a closer relationship with Google.
  •  
    Excellent overview of Rupert Murdoch's taking on of Google and that they should not index his sites, even though he can easily opt out of indexing, that they are somehow demonetizing his work by searching since he wants to "reduce his audience to those who will pay" not "increase his audience." This is a fascinating read and case study for those following Fair Use.

    An interactive encyclopedia of courts and judges editing in a wikipedia-like format but with a commitment to be  unbiased - it will be interesting to see how this works, but the traffic is very respectable and the aim is a great one, if they can pull it off.
