AP Story [news.yahoo.com]:

BRUSSELS, Belgium - European publishers warned Tuesday that they cannot keep allowing Internet search engines such as Google Inc. to make money from their content. "The new models of Google and others reverse the traditional permission-based copyright model of content trading that we have built up over the years," said Francisco Pinto Balsemao, the head of the European Publishers Council, in prepared remarks for a speech at a Brussels conference.

I have to agree with them.

And people wonder why Google News is in perpetual Beta: because Google knows what it is doing with Google News is illegal. It might benefit some news websites but obviously not all of them.

I agree--people shouldn't be able to swipe content.

How is what they are doing any different than what was done in the first post here?

A small blurb about the content, (fair use) with a link back to the source.

"Fair use is a copyright principle based on the belief that the public is entitled to freely use portions of copyrighted materials forpurposes of commentary and criticism."

How is Google producing a list of news headlines and blurbs considered "commentary and criticism".

Would you be OK with me synopsizing your website such that a user can come to my site to see what your site is about instead of going to your website (and seeing my ads, not yours)? Of course not. Same thing.

Oddly, print.google.com and books.google.com are both down right now...

Well, take down 90% of people's links pages, where they provide a quick blurb about the site with a link...

Well publishers get traffic from search engines....then they can make more money from incresed traffic to their sites.

And if they don't want the traffic why not block the spiders with robots.txt

Sorry, I wasn't clear. I should have said, "Would you be OK with me synopsizing every piece of content on your website."
