SirWinston writes “A Daily Mail editor has written perhaps the most Luddite attack on Google ever, reading just like a 19th-century manifesto against looms and factories. ‘Google has become a global predator ruthlessly gobbling up potential rivals such as YouTube and ‘stealing’ the creative work of writers, film makers and the music industry… Google has granted these piracy sites a licence to steal… It undermines investment in the very creative industries that have become such an important part of our national prosperity, and employ hundreds of thousands of people.’ The article lionizes brick-and-mortar business and traditional media, and reads as a funny anachronism–except that these may be the attitudes of European regulators now shaking down Google and new media.”
