Murdoch's Daughter Recognizes That 'Piracy' Can Be Good
from the tell-your-dad... dept
Even as Rupert Murdoch is calling aggregators and other sites "pirates" and claiming that fair use can be blocked, it seems his daughter has a more enlightened view. Copycense points us to a recent talk by Elisabeth Murdoch, who owns a TV production house, where she basically admits that blocking what people want to do is a bad idea:
"Fans remain the best salesmen of our content, even if that behavior is on the borderline of piracy. Danger of the new world is that we must concede that we'll lose some control."Nice to hear. Now, if only her Dad would listen to her before he pisses off a bunch of his best content salesmen.
