‘The aggregators and plagiarists will soon have to pay a price for the co-opting of our content,’ Murdoch says.
These are some interesting words, which I found from a Slashdot article, titled "Rupert Murdoch Says Google is Stealing His Content".
Two and a half years ago I wrote a blog entry, "What is Content?" and in that I said "Who controls our content, controls the knowledge that is represented to us. The channels of delivery holds worth that is higher then the cost of the content itself; but the channel itself has no worth without content.".
I believe what we are seeing now is the channel of delivery that controls more formal content exerting it’s influence. The worth of the content, when it is
not used directly to generate advertising revenue, will be interesting to see and to discover, as these current, being instigated by Murdoch, events unfold.
