Google blinks at publishers

Google logoGoogle has agreed, as a concession to publishers of paid content news, to let them limit the number of free articles accessed through the Internet search engine.  Journalism Department Chairman Lou Ureneck calls it a positive development for the media indusry, and ultimately for consumers.

“The free traffic in articles that news organizations have put significant money into developing is unsustainable in the long term. This moves the Internet and media closer to a consumer-paid model.”
