“The aggregators and plagiarists will soon have to pay a price for the co-opting of our content. But if we do not take advantage of the current movement toward paid content, it will be the content creators, the people in this hall, who will pay the ultimate price and the content kleptomaniacs who triumph.”
Such are the words of Rupert Murdoch in an edited transcript by Ben Parr.
I added this comment:
Our content? Our content?
Hello, Mr. Murdoch, you do not create content. You report content. So do I. You and I, Mr. Murdoch, are equals, along with Mr. Batt. Once you recognize we are equals in content creation and distribution, you will recognize we are not aggregators and plagiarists. If you fail to recognize this, you may as well label yourself the same–or shall I remind you why Fox-TV and NBC report the same content? Is NBC a plagiarist too?
Am I right or wrong? Who owns the content?
