A Struggle Over Dominance and Definition is good New York Times article out
today that looks at Google and whether it is a media company that conflicts with
other media owners, especially in terms of using content from others without
permission. It also sparked me to finally finish a long piece I’ve been meaning
to do on Google, search engines and copyright issues.
Search Engines, Permissions &
Moving Forward In Copyright Battles is now up over at my personal blog
Daggle, covering the important difference between indexing and reprinting, how
robots.txt already provides a permissions system, why Google should stop
scanning in-copyright books and also be a leader in dropping cached pages.
