I hope Australia doesn’t back down to these blackmailing little cunts.
Look at Google’s pitiful non-starter of an ‘argument’:
“Google says it wants to help fund original, local journalism”. Right. Presumably their idea of “funding” involves the local newspaper earning 0.00003c per click through Google.
“An untenable precedent for our businesses and the digital economy”. What???? How about instead of vague, corporate guff that is completely meaningless you actually come up with anything convincing, whatsoever, you cretin.
Ah yes, “free” isn’t how the Internet works, is it petal. I mean, Google has all this stuff for free, plus domination of the search engine and phone OS market – you wouldn’t want to take all that away now, would you…? Think about our executives with their weekly hooker and cocaine parties would ya! You selfish fuck!
