Newspapers demands could give Google more power
Google isn't big enough. Right. So, now the dingbats who run some of the big news services are making it bigger. How? Well, they reckon it's okay to make Google "take" their feeds rather than link to their very own customers, thus screwing those customers and further benefiting Google.
Interesting comment by John Dvorak.
In my mind this demand is really going to backfire on the newspapers and portals as folks read the AP, CP, AGP stories on the Google Site rather than the newspapers or portals site.
BTW, I no longer read Reuters articles off Yahoo as I go straight to the Reuters site.
