Publishers Of Certain Belgian Newspapers Continue Effort To Not Be Found Online
from the why-not-stop-publishing-online dept
Here’s an idea: why don’t the various French- and German-language Belgian newspapers stop publishing their newspapers online? After their ridiculous win against Google for sending traffic their way without first paying them, the group of newspaper publishers is now going after Yahoo for the same thing. There really is an easy solution. Yahoo, Google and everyone else should simply refrain from linking to these newspapers. If they really want to be left alone, to lose all that traffic and to lose all that relevance, that’s their own decision. In the meantime, how long will it be before someone else comes along and figures this is a cash cow and starts suing? At this point, perhaps everyone should just sue Google, Yahoo, Microsoft, Ask and others for daring to link to them.
