    Ooooo Facebook Australia: PM Scott Morrison 'will not be intimidated' by tech giant, wheres Nick Glegg in all this

    Re: Is Facebook In Charge Now

    Australian news sites are demanding Facebook pay money for letting those sites and their users being able to promote their content on Facebook.

    In those circumstances, Facebook is well within their rights to say no and to block that ability.

    The sites’ whole argument was that Facebook got more value out of that transaction than they did, and thus were ‘stealing’ content.

    Facebook has, in effect, said: fine – we’ll stop.

    Morrison’s shambolic handling of Facebook demonstrates the perils of enlisting Murdoch to co-design media policy. If we want strong diverse media we need comprehensive policy guided by best evidence. Senate Inquiry on #MurdochRoyalCommission starts Friday.

    Not going to pretend I understand it but sounds like there is more to it.

    If we lost Facebook tomorrow the world would be a better place, as with most social media.

    What do you mean "Is Facebook in charge now?". They've been in charge for quite a long time....

    This "news aggregator" thing has always been a mind bender. If you were to print a newspaper in which you simple reprinted articles from other publications you would clearly be in copyright violation, unless you paid them for the right to re-publish their work. News aggregation sites do much the same thing through links, as do search engines. And yet . . . it's a little different. Mind bender.

    Bottom line for me: Yes, if the information you link to brings you commercial profit, then you should probably share that profit with the creators of the content.

    Or stop doing it? Which is, of course, what they have done... in a highly disorganised way that hits out at ordinary Australians, apparently.

    We are now part of a techno fascist society, the neo liberal eiltes have no intention of giving up power while they destroy the people of the west like they destroyed middle east.

    every main political party is bankrupt we are at war with the establishment.
