Auch beunruhige ihn, dass Google ... seit einiger Zeit als Unterstützer geplanter riesiger Schiffe und schwimmender Arbeitswelten gilt, die auf offenem Meer, also in staatenlosem Gewässer, kreuzen und operieren können
The head of Europe’s biggest newspaper publisher by circulation has accused Google of seeking to establish a digital “superstate” free from the constraints of antitrust regulators and privacy concerns.
In a passage speculating that Google may be planning to build offshore working environments to escape democratic accountability, Mr Döpfner writes: “Is Google planning to operate in a legal vacuum without the hassle of anti-trust regulators and data protection… does Google plan in all seriousness a digital superstate in which its citizens will naturally only do good and “won’t be evil”.”
In fact what the author is about, is that poeple tend to search for news! Lets say football news, politic news a.s.o. google scraps their news and put them of the top of the search without routing the user to the main site.
There's a really important point that all publishers are facing, and it's not new
I think it is not publishers alone. All Internet business facing this problem. All niches that Google puts its eyes on, are very thin Business stuffed now. Google on top with only one or two competitors ( mostly brands ).
Turbocharged, Google isn't an aggregator, it's a search engine.
Turbocharged, Google isn't an aggregator, it's a search engine. If you want to worry about aggregators, you should be worrying about sites like Huffington Post, which publish far more than headlines and snippets.
I suspect that Mathias Doepfner has access to his company's traffic logs, as the CEO, and is quite capable of determining who the threat is to their company.
