According to Sirotsky, what the Internet search companies are doing is embezzlement since they are presenting material they didn't produce themselves and then fraudulently keeping money that doesn't belong to them. Sirotsky doesn't want, however, to close these indexing services as long as they share the money they are making with the content producers.
In Brazil many newspapers and magazines are already keeping the search engines outside their borders. The site Universo on Line (UOL), for example, hosts dozens of publications including Brazil's largest-circulation newspaper and magazine, Folha de S. Paulo and Veja, respectively.
