Googles core business is basically to copy content from our websites and exploit it commercially. In Search Engine Land today Google cry like little girls because they claim Bing is copying their search results. Grow up Google! If it’s ethical for you to copy information why is it unethical for others to do the same?
Google founded their business on “stealing” other people’s copyrighted online material. Then they moved on to printed books, our streets etc. They never asked if we want to be “robbed” – Google stick to the claim that its all for the good and they know better. Just like the white man did in Africa!
One of Denmark’s major daily newspapers Politiken have printed an entire book in today’s edition without permission from the author or the publisher! They claim that their “freedom of speech” is more important than the publishers copyright. The same newspaper is strongly against Google News and similar news search services.
