Google complies to AFP request

Remember, that yesterday, I wrote that AFP is going to sue Google for copyright issues. Goodle News originally contained news from AFP and the company has now agreed to comply to AFP's request. Following this it will remove articles from AFP from their Google News.

What will be the impact? Well, people will still use Google News. They just don't see articles from AFP anymore. They will lose the awareness of AFP. Anybody who is reading news and may be some day decides to subscribe to a news service would not think about AFP anymore. AFP loses relevance in the new world. That is happening, if one is deciding to fight emerging trends, tries to keep working an outdated business model and ignores facts.
