Intellectual property right: Google is publishing ultimatum * Update *

All have been waiting like Google on the new intellectual property right for press publishers would react. The campaign against the law now was not a success, the law is there: How Google reacts now? After the group has only done nothing today now follows the reaction and it falls right out clearly .
Intellectual property right: Google is publishing ultimatum * Update *

All listed in Google News Offers received an email from Google to agree with the request that Google may use their services, including the display of snippets in the future . Who does not grant such approval to 1.8.2013, the flies out! A clear ultimatum and exactly the reaction that many opponents of the LSR have hoped: Google makes it clear who the publishers takes visitors!

Now bets can be completed at how many publishers and their offers after 1.8. will have in Google News. My personal opinion would be that very few will abandon this traffic source. The damage due to loss of advertising income to a kicking from Google News and the consequent loss of visitors would be significantly greater than the expected revenue by enforcing the LSR in my opinion.

Worth reading: intellectual property right, or bankruptcy of the German Publishers

And Google is here – whether intentionally or not – not even purely selfish. The license fees for the company would probably rather not worth mentioning, in no case would the sums which would have brought the search engine giant in distress. But a side effect of this action may be that other, smaller providers benefit: It would be difficult for the publishers to argue why they allow Google snippets, but want it to stop at the hand of other providers. Of course, I’m sure that there will be publishers who will try just that – but in the end probably not successful.

Now, before all burst into jubilation that Google here takes action against a senseless and schädeliches law, we should not forget what that means: A single company apparently has such market power that it is practically an entire industry can force you to legally to waive their rights to. And we’re not talking about any industry, it’s about an industry that – that too was part of the justification for the related right – an important contribution to the decision-making and democracy does (or at least should make). Really healthy for a market economy and a democracy is not safe.

We will see how the policy will respond. A statement I could directly ask for Michael Hilberer, the Group Chairman of ever pirate faction in the Parliament of Saarland :

It appears the one thing we have predicted: The so-called intellectual property right does not use the publishers, but harm to all Internet users. During a press comfortably against the LSR could be found on Google and you surfed on the interest of the offers from publishers, this modern offer is no longer possible.
The German Internet users are excluded by law from the lobby of this modern communication.

Update: When you see our Google – critical heading and keeps it elected for no good – admittedly very pointedly formulated. Of course it is not that Google has chosen here and set a deadline, the deadline results simply from the law, on the 1.8. enters into force. The Company believes that Google News is a free offer from Google to the publishers and if the publishers want to use this, they must confirm that they really want to take advantage of this offer and, indeed to the given conditions of the offer to which it is just snippets that can be used free of charge.
