    By BRIAN STELTER







    I found this interesting, in light of my recent banning.

    A good policy to have would be to use a time delay system. The copyright owners keep the article to them selves for 3 months, 6 months or a year and then after that time they can sell/give the article to others that want to use it and credit the original author(s). This would help the owners maintain their audience and not have them filtered off, or at least reduce the number of readers filtered to other parts of the media.

    But after three to six months, it could be way outdated already...

    So it seems what it boils down to once again is the almighty dollar. The starter tabloid is concerned people won't be having to pay for their magazine or paper or website content if someone posts the information elsewhere.

    Let's all act surprised~~nope~~Can't do that because I;m not surprised considering the level of greed most of the wealthy follks have.
    Heaven forbid that people get to learn and enjoy things for free.

    Yes well that would be a problem. Then again there are people who like to get their news late and it works nicely as a history lesson at that point in time.
