Ban Blogs From Linking To Newspapers, Says US Judge

Famous and respected New York Judge Richard Posner says maybe we should ban links to save newspapers.


From his blog: Imagine if the New York Times migrated entirely to the World Wide Web. Could it support, out of advertising and subscriber revenues, as large a news-gathering apparatus as it does today? This seems unlikely, because it is much easier to create a web site and free ride on other sites than to create a print newspaper and free ride on other print newspapers, in part because of the lag in print publication; what is staler than last week's news.
