Welcome to the website of the Creators' Copyright Coalition. We at the CCC are committed to access to our creative works just as we are committed to copyright: we work for copyright legislation that ensures both. Here on our op-ed pages we will be posting opinion, commentary, links, and news of interest to creators and others engaged in copyright reform. Elsewhere, you'll find our archive of studies, handbooks and press releases. And while we're not currently hosting a discussion forum, comments sent to us may be posted or noted here (unless you ask us not to).

Monetizing digitizing, part 1,000,000

By Op-Ed Editor | March 2, 2009

New York Times on monetizing the process by which blogs and online aggregators excerpt published work. If Google News makes a business out of referring readers to others’ work, and Google collects ad revenue from the process, does it owe a slice of its take to all the sites it’s referencing?

Yup, probably.

And here we are linking to them too. This gets self-referential real fast.
