The Corporate Gangsters Never cease to Amaze me.
The Associated Press, The New York Times, The Washington Post, along with 28 other news organizations, intend to launch a new Company called NEWS RIGHT. As the heading states YOU WRITE WHAT YOU ARE TOLD THEY Tailor The News to their own ends , so they now assume they own it, & intend to CHARGE for it via Their New Co NEWS RIGHT.
I don’t think this is the last we have heard of this, I haven’t seen it mentioned elsewhere, so just wait till the Blogs find out about this.
I sense the sneaky hand of Murdoch in this. They say the Technology is available to ‘POLICE’ it.
Here is the Article, with some very interesting comments.

The Associated Press, The New York Times, The Washington Post, along with 28 other news organizations, are launching a company which hopes to further profit on their news reporting, by seeking to make paying customers out of websites or blogs which reproduce their content, either in full or in part.
The new company will go by the ridiculous name of ‘NewsRight’, to make it better appear to the general public that these mainstream media outlets have some kind of exclusivity over the very flow of human existence of any significance (or as equally likely, insignificance) taking place anywhere in the world.
With technology available to the media organizations which I have mentioned to clandestinely encode news stories or articles with the writer’s name and date published, NewsRight, will not only know when content is under their watchful eye, has been copied and pasted elsewhere on the Internet, but also the privacy infringing details of just who may be viewing it.
NewsRight, is to be led by former ABC News president David Westin, who apparently has insufficient grasp of public sentiment toward greedy corporations or conglomerates, these days, as he inform us :
‘More news is available more ways than ever in history. But if reliable information is to continue to flourish, the company’s investing in creating content need efficient ways to license it as broadly as possible,’ Westin said in a statement. ‘NewsRight’s mission is to make sure consumers continue to benefit from the all the original news reporting they want while ensuring those who republish content do so with integrity.
